ADELINE and QUICK HANDS, are taken from stories that appeared in previously-published anthologies. In both cases, these tales should be considered "samplers" for the content of the rest of these anthologies, which remain available elsewhere on Amazon. These collections, respectively, are LOST CHILDREN: PROTECTORS as edited by Thomas Pluck; and BATTLING BOXING STORIES, as edited by Gary Lovisi. Both feature a fine range of stories by various authors and PROTECTORS has the added distinction of being a charity anthology with all proceeds going to PROTECT (The National Association to Protect Children – www.protect.org).
