A closer look at the short story
If you share my interest in short stories and would like to do some background reading about the genre, here are some links for you:
- A short history of the short story from Prospect Magazine
- The history of the short story as seen by the Grumpy Old Bookman, one of my favourite bloggers (who sadly seems have retired completely from blogging). First the official history, and then the true history (as he sees it).
- Finally, The Guardian book blog has an ongoing series surveying the short story. Start at the bottom and work you way up.
