I guess I’m on a something of a Cold War kick. Alison and I have recently started watching (and thoroughly enjoying) the FX show The Americans. Then, I came across a collection of short stories while browsing the new books at the Plainfield Public Library – Ice Cold: tales of intrigue from the Cold War edited by Jeffery Deaver and Raymond Benson. This collection has a good variety of stories – more than just spies – and fits in nicely into my current Cold War binge. A short story a night before bed is good for your health. Check it out.
