V. I. for Short.
Penguin. 1995

rating : 4 : passes the time
review : 6 December 1996

Nine short stories.

It is difficult to write a good 'puzzle' short story, because there is not enough time for a succession of juicy red herrings. So these stories tend to concentrate on the characters, giving some background to V.I.'s friends, and aren't quite as traumatic as the novels.
