>Check out The Short Review, “where short story collections step into the spotlight.”

Founder and editor Tania Hershman says:

I love short stories. I love writing them and I love reading them. But it’s not so easy to find reviews of short story collections, especially ones published by small presses. They just don’t get the column inches that novels receive. It’s no wonder they don’t sell as well as novels – or that publishers think readers don’t want to read short stories. So I thought I would create a space just for short story collections and anthologies, to give them their turn in the spotlight.

In the current issue of The Short Review you will find the following collections reviewed, among others:

HeavyGlow Flash Fiction
McSweeney’s Enchanted Chamber of Astonishing Stories
No One Belongs Here More than You by Miranda July

Also, be sure to stop by their blog.

This is a much needed resource. Keep up the good work, Tania!


About smokelong

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
