Read My Shorts!

It's still Short Story Month for another week, which means you still have time to read a few more excellent short stories.

I'm almost finished with Tania Hershman's excellent and often pleasantly bizarre collection My Mother was an Upright Piano. These stories are brief bursts of creative energy that will stay with you long after you've put the book down.

Here's a list of short reads at Dan Powell's The Short and the Long of It. And I'm on it. Thanks, Dan!

"We Dance" by Jane Hammons at Fictionaut

"Ten Notes to the Guy Studying Jujitsu" by Robert Vaughan, now at Fictionaut (not for children)

"Fly" by Julie Innis. This story, originally at fwriction, now appears in her new collection of short stories Three Squares a Day with Occasional Torture.

A short post, I know. But it is Short Story Month. 

I must be off (to read more shorts),


Christopher Allen writes fiction, creative non-fiction and of course this here blog. His work has appeared in numerous places both online and in print. Read more about him HERE.
