Week Links: Short Story Week
Short Stops, The Short Review’s sister site, is a new resource site for the short story in the UK and Ireland.
The new Unthology is now open for submissions.
Spolia Magazine’s Hysteria issue looks worth reading with a mix of short fiction and otherwriting by Rebecca Brown, Ana María Shua, A Codrescu, Sjón, Suzanne Scanlon and David Hayden.
I like the look of David Gaffney’s Errata Slips, which convert non-fiction into short stories.
This week I’ve read Russian short stories:
Chekhov’s tiny After The Theatre, on Ali Smith’s advice.
The Crocodile (“At last, with a final gulp, the crocodile swallowed my cultured friend”) by Fyodor Dostoevsky.
I have a short story in Russian at the excellent European Short Story Network. It’s also in English and French.
