    1. This was a really quick read but I thoroughly enjoyed it. We get to read the story of a man who is lying in the hospital dying of cancer. We learn that in his childhood he was able to imagine another world in his mind and bring it into existence. Although sad, this story is a great tribute to the imagination of a child and how so many of us as adults forget about how liberating that was. This story can also been seen as a nod to the unknown capacity of the human mind and what it's capable of if [...]


    2. I liked this short story. When I got to the end, I wanted to scream because I wanted to know what happened with the Shane. Oh well. One thing that I didn't like? That was when Shane's wife had him promise her that he would beat the cancer. That was a bit much on her part. She would definitely be one of those family members that would keep her spouse or whoever alive, even if they couldn't breath on their own and were basically a vegetable. Very selfish.


    3. A short tale that tells the story of Shane Halpert, a man suffering from cancer with little hope of survival until he rediscovers the Special Place of his childhood. Here he has all the time in the world while his body rests in the real world, his mind gets to work. This is a very human tale that pays homage to the imaginations of our childhoods and how they are lost as we grow older, much to our own disadvantage, and how we can rekindle these imaginations, if only we would try.


    4. This felt more like a writing exercise than a completed short story. Not bad, but over-written in the beginning and rushed at the end.
