My first short story

I just got my first short story published. It’s in Explorations: Colony . It was an interesting experience–turns out writing short stories requires an entirely different mindset from writing novels. I have to admire authors who do this as their primary focus, and I especially have to admire authors (like many golden-age greats) who did both effectively.

    It looks like this is “Explorations Volume Four”. Should I read the previous 3 anthologies to understand the context?

    1. As a general statement, yes. The volumes form an ongoing story from a beginning premise. Authors who have published in all the volumes will probably have continued their stories through the series. This was my first foray into short stories, so I don’t know how I compare to the others.
