Need a good book of short stories?

Looking for something different? I finished listening to Hard Magic, Book I of the Grimnoir Chronicles; by Larry Correia and narrated by Bronson Pinchot. This is an entertaining story. Magic comes to Earth in the mid 1800’s. By 1930 Japan is run by the most powerful of those with the “talent,” and he has plans for the world. Larry Correia uses real people and events from history, twisted to account for magic growing in world, on an alternate Earth. Good dialogue, character development, and exciting action.
