Do you need to read ALL the Mirror Universe short stories from the three Mirror Universe novels, or is reading The Sorrows Of Empires enough before you start Rise Like Lions?

I have read the DS9 Relaunch MU novels.
Umm, terminology.. There are three MU anthologies, the first two of which, Glass Empires and Obsidian Alliances, contain three short novels apiece, while the third, Shards and Shadows, contains a number of short stories. Of course you don't need to read them all to understand Rise Like Lions; you can probably follow it well enough all by itself. But it does help if you've read the short-novel anthologies. As for the short stories in Shards and Shadows, some are referenced to an extent, while others (including mine, alas) are not.
