"Shades of Greene" has arrived ...

... and I'm engrossed in reading Graham Greene's Short Stories.

Good reading but they don't come near Somerset W. Maugham's short stories (maybe Anton Chekhov's do).

Of course, Graham Greene is better known for his novels, such as "The Power and the Glory" and "The Quiet American" which was made into a successful movie.

Some of Maugham's and Chekhov's short stories.
