I should have asked sooner. Better late, as they say, than missed altogether– so I put it to you today, the last Forum Friday of January:
What’s your favorite short story?
For the last 25 days (since the beginning of the year) I have been reading one short story a day and gleaning what I can as a sort of intensive study course. I have read classics and modern; long and short; fable, parable, vignette, literary, speculative, experimental. My reading has come from anthologies, online collections, and dusted-off volumes from my own bookshelves.
But I should have asked sooner: what stories have impressed, impacted, and stayed with you? It it those I am most interested in reading.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions and commentary 🙂
