A few of these carry over from the last post I had for my review queue, though there are a few updates considering I just finished the books.

New voices heard
Flash Fiction Forward: 80 Very Short Stories - James R. Thomas

With most of these stories only being a page and a half long, I can't much see the point of reviewing all or most of them (plus there's 80 of them and dude, I don't have that much time and wrestling's on tonight!).

 

Therefore here's a list of authors I discovered and want to read more of thanks to this book, which is often the reason I'll scour short story collections:

 

 

  • Don Shea
  • Alison Townsend
  • Stace Budzko
  • Katherine Weber
  • Steve Almond
  • Hannah Bottomy
  • Kim Church
  • Richard Bausch
  • John Biguenet
  • Stacey Richter
  • Jack Handey
  • Samantha Schoech
  • Leigh Allison Wilson
  • Utahna Faith
  • David Galef
  • Jenny Hall
  • Barry Gifford
  • Leonardo Alishan
    • Jennifer A. Howard
    • Barbara Jacksha
    • Ander Monson
    • Patricia Marx
    • Tony Earley
    • Kit Coyne Irwin
    • Tom Hazuka
    • Sherrie Flick
    • Christopher Merrill
    • G.A. Ingersoll - ("Test" is a true gem, this book is worth reading just for that story)
    • Opal Palmer Adisa
    • Bruce Holland Rogers
    • Michael Knight - "The Mesmerist" is another gem...would love to see this in novel length, and/or as a movie

Cutting things down to size on my reading/reviewing list, at least for ARCs

Currently going through a long backlog of NetGalley titles. I'm going through my reading list and deciding which ones I'll take on/review and which ones I think I'll leave. I think my backlog's come to the point where I have to cut it down to size. Also I'm renewing my galley copies for the ones that are still active. I'm pretty sure once I finish vetting this, my feedback ratio will be much higher.
