That’s all for me. Thanks to everyone who sent suggestions for your favorite short stories of all time today. Please feel free to keep them coming, and I’ll post selections next time.

Maud will be back soon. Mr. Maud (who I must say is looking charmingly hirsute lately) gave her a ring of keys, and said she could pretty much have the run of the place. Except for this one key. Go everywhere, he said, except into this one room. You do that, and you’re gonna open you up a can of whoop ass. But you know ol’ Maud. She’s the curious type.

She’ll have learned her lesson by Monday, I’m sure. Look for her return then.
