OK… I’m working on creating my list of fifty-two short stories to read in 2014, as part of my annual short story reading project. I have about thirty nailed down already, but I’d like to open the rest of the field up to YOUR suggestions. I’m particularly interested in local (Indiana) authors, indie authors, and women authors. I will read almost any genre, but usually about one-fourth of my annual stories are horror/ghost stories, which may be my favorite kind. Most of the stories I’ve already collected are by well-established authors, so I’d appreciate suggestions for lesser known authors’ stories, and ones that I’ve “never heard of” will be given special consideration. Also, if YOU are someone who has had stories published, tell me your favorite, and I will add it to the list.
In 2013, I’ve posted on about two-thirds of the short stories in my annual project. In 2014, I’ll try to post something on all of them. I won’t be finalizing my list until 12/21, so you have some time to come up with some good ones. I eagerly await your suggestions… 🙂
