It's National Short Story Week from 22-28 November:-

Wonder if we could do something for this, perhaps a read in or similar. Ideas anyone?

Short notice now but it does seem worth our doing something. Pity the fix is o/c at present. Maybe we can offer some free publicity in BS 19 if Andy agrees.

More info emerging about this. They want to know our favourite short stories:-

With just over a month to go until National Short Story Week, we are asking readers everywhere to tell us their favourite short story writer, favourite short story and where they usually read short stories. Our survey takes just a minute to complete and we don't ask for any personal information. You can find it here: http://tinyurl.com/32zg3o7
Please take the survey and pass the link on to your friends - we'll let you know the results nearer to the week.

There are now more events added to the website, so take a look at what's happening and be inspired to take part or hold an event of your own!

Best wishes,

National Short Story Week

You're all my friends, so I've passed the link on.

I thought I'd take part in the survey noted above but if asking for my favourite writer isn't hard enough you then have to pick a favourite STORY of all time, too.

My brain hurts.

I'd like to nominate the following story from Benedict J Jones that featured in Deadlines Issue 3

http://deadlineszine.com/bjjones.aspx

This offers some wonderful characters and an interesting steampunk world is hinted at. Hopefully more stories are forthcoming set in this universe.

That's the ticket Ross. I'm going to nominate "The Dualitists" by Bram Stoker:-

http://arthursclassicnovels.com/stoker/dualitist10.html

Ally mentioned the story in her anthology piece and got me curious to read it, so this will provide motivation.

Any further nominations?

If we don't get any more I'll just bung in a load of other classic horrors, then it will be Benedict Jones up against the Masters.

So, a bj or an old horror story? I have feeling that one is a foregone conclusion, and apologies to all for lowering the tone :wink:

cheers ross and yes hopefully there is going to be a longer story set in the same 'world' (just have to get a few other bits out of the way first)

In no particular order, here are my twelve favourite short stories -

The Animal Fair by Robert Bloch
Anima by M John Harrison
A Whimper of Whipped Dogs by Harlan Ellison
A Rose For Emily by William Faulkner
Where Angels Come In by Adam L G Nevill
Strawberry Spring by Stephen King
The Monkey's Paw by W W Jacobs
The Chimney by Ramsey Campbell
Flying Into Naples by Nicholas Royle
The Prospect Cards by Don Tumasonis
More Tomorrow by Michael Marshall Smith
The Hospice by Robert Aickman

I realise none of these are available to read online, other than probably The Monkey's Paw, so I'd like to nominate that.

The Return by Joseph Conrad

Guys, guys, guys - we need to be able to read the stories online, so you need to supply links, if possible.

Oops - not horror. Does that matter? It is a note-perfect piss-take of Henry James, if that counts for anything.

Author:  Pete [ Mon Nov 08, 2010 9:17 pm ]
Post subject: 

Nah, doesn't have to be horror. Any genre will do, or even mainstream, just as long as it's a short story and available to read online.

Of course, a horror story will probably win :wink:
