Nine of Brown's short stories. They are all classic/continuing classic, (no SNDs) however in one story Vincent has passed away.
In 'A Maglione Christmas,' Joe Maxwell volunteers to make Christmas dinner for C's relatives.
'Mother's Little Angel' has C kidnapped by a brutally childish man and his vicious, greedy mother.
In 'The Blue Danube'' C/V share a memorable dance.
In 'Happiness; Inc.' shrink Dr. Grafton (of 'A Happy Life') persuades C to go for a weekend retreat among man-hating feminists.
In 'The After-Comers' - which the author terms controversial - C tries to rebuild a life after V's death.
The story 'Arthur's Quest' tells of two tunnels pets - raccoon Arthur and haughty cat Ooja - trying to heal a rift between V/C.
In 'The Whole Truth and Nothing But' a former tunnel dweller delivers the hurtful benefit of her new-found religiosity and intolerance to startled C & V.
In 'King Burch' in despair over C's decision (in 'Ozymandius') to marry Elliot, V tells tunnel children a fairy tale of King Burch, the lovely maiden Kathryn, and the terrible Beast. An early version of this story was published in Reflection's III.
