I knew I'd read Blockade Billy, Morality and A Death before. Realized I'd already read Premium Harmony when I got to that story in BoBD. Might come across others along the way. Wish I hadn't reread Premium Harmony - that might be the saddest SK short story ever. At least so far!

I had read A Death before. Have UR as ebook. but havent read it. Now i'm really curious since he said this version is way different than the eversion. Might have to explore what differs....Have Blockade Billy in my bpookshelf but when i learned it would be a part of this collection i refrained from reading it. Wonder if there is differences there too...?

I had read Mile 81, A Death, and The Little Green God of Agony in e-format before this collection was published.

Have you read any of the stories prior to this?
I have read "The Little Green God of Agony" (not sure what the other ones are yet; I guess I could look up a list, since I don't have the book yet either).

I'm up to Afterlife. Enjoying the hell out of it. Most of them I have read before, but not the little forward to each story. Also, best CR greeting EVER! Morality is bugging me a little, though. Darn, how does the spoiler alert work again? I won't say anything else at the moment.

I had read UR, Mile 81, Blockade Billy and Morality

I think UR was one of the first things I read on my first kindle. I don't think Mile 81 was far behind as I read that on the kindle also. I bought the hardback of Blockade Billy and it had the story, Morality in it. I think I bought a later edition of Blockade because I don't think Morality was in the original edition (I could be wrong though).

So far I have previously read Mile 81 and UR. At first I was kind of pissed to see stories that I have already read in a new SK book of short stories; however, I did see (at least so far.) changes in the story Mile 81 and the way SK wrote at the beginning, I can only expect other changes in UR as well as other pieces too. And some stories that I haven't read are in the book and one that I know that I haven't got around to reading yet--Blockade Billy. So no big deal. :okay:

Just finished Afterlife this afternoon and am certain I've read it before. Does anyone know if it was available online? I looked it up and definitely didn't read it in Tin House Magazine.
