How do we want to handle the short stories?

We're discussion the short stories next week - what should that look like? Multiple posts? What should we cover?

So there's three types of shorts that we're talking about:

1. The Home Crowd Advantage and three 'Moments', available on Aaronovitch's website.

2. A Rare Book of Cunning Device, which is available only on audible.

3. The Waterstones short stories, which are found in Waterstones special editions.

I was thinking of covering 1 and 2, but not covering 3, since it seems like more people who are participating in the discussions have (legal) access to those than the Waterstones shorts, but I also don't have an issue with adding them to the discussion. Another option would be to have separate posts for each of the types of short stories, or group 1 and 2 together, and then have another one for 3.

(also, I can totally be missing a group that we can discuss)

I vote for covering the two, and while I wouldn't insist on covering the third, I guess I wouldn't object to it. I think I've read some of the Waterstones shorts via the "somebody typed them out on Tumblr" method, which other people may not be comfortable doing.

Yeah, I'm generally for people paying for work (or borrowing said work), but I have a lot less of a problem with people enjoying things that they can't purchase because of their region.

I'm more uncomfortable about having a list of links on Metafilter to places where people have typed up the waterstones stories, but maybe a second post with the waterstones shorts, a list of them, and then just not ask how people are reading them?
