Recently I learned of an award winning science fiction/fantasy author that I had not read before and was excited to read some of her work. I didn’t remember her name but remembered the title of her award winning short story. Since I was already on an online book store I decided to see if that title was available for sale. It was on sale for 99 cents. It was a short story with the right title and a female author‘s name, so I just figured it was the one I was looking for, and bought it.
I was so excited to enjoy an outstanding short story from a master writer. But no. I should have paid more attention or checked the author. This was definitely not sci-fi/fantasy.
While I am a bit more liberal than many, this was the sort of tale I was embarrassed to have on my hard drive and not my cup of tea if I were to put something explicit on my computer. The moral to me is double check authors and titles before you buy.
Has anyone else ever had a similar experience?
