The Short Review

shining the spotlight on short story collections

Week Links: Christmas Presence

The Book Trust has a short story advent calendar with a story/collection recommendation for each day leading up to Christmas.

If anyone’s listening, here are a few collections I’d like for Christmas. Maybe you would too…

Gaitskill’s Bad Behavior

41DRnU5ge0L-1

Rower’s If You’re a Girl

9780936756608-medium

Calloway’s What Purpose Did I Serve in Your Life?

Feneon’s Novels in Three Lines (the original Flash Fiction).

In 2014 I’d like to see new editions of

Dino Buzzati

and

Jean Rhys’s collected short stories – surprisingly difficult to get your hands on as the last edition was published over 20 years ago (here’s one read – again – by Miette, here).

I’ve bought people subscriptions to these excellent (though not all, or even mostly, short story) publishers:

Peirene Press

and

AndOtherStories

How about you? Please leave links to stories or collections you’d like to give, or receive, in the comments box.
