“I love short stories because I believe they are the way we live.”

–Andre Dubus 

It is through short fiction that The Hangover can provide something more than opinion, humor, and hot air to its readers.  The short story portrays life as we know it and life as we don’t.  Both are infinitely valuable.  A click on the titles will get you there.  We hope you like them.
