I've ALWAYS hated short stories. Never knew why, but I just do not like to read shorts. Even when BL puts all the shorts in a fat book (using BL as an example), I still hate them (the stories). That being said, I am also not going to $2 + tax for every short story they feel like throwing out.
Being a collector however, when they release these in a compilation in paper form, I will buy that. But that's just because I like to collect BL books (not the digital versions, even though I buy those too).
