An Apple for the Creature (2012) edited by Charlaine Harris & Toni L. P. Kelner

First, I hate this title. It grates on my nerves like nails down a chalkboard.

Luckily, the title is not reflective of most of the stories inside.

Donald Harstead's story "Academy Field Trip" was an interesting one. Law enforcement professionals are at a special training course; the three instructors pull one student aside to get her input on a "special case." I can't say I loved the story, but it was interesting.

All in all, it was a decent selection of short stories that made up for terrible title.
