Let's see, questions this week are:
1. Short Stories? Or full-length novels?
I prefer the novel, and usually the longer the better. Except those Russian guys. I tried Crime and Punishment yet again last year, only to fail miserably again. I don't think I can read the Russians--I'm temperamentally unsound or something.
But a good book of short stories can be a joy. I personally recommend Tim Gatreaux's collections: Welding With Children and Same Place, Same Things. The boy can write Louisiana. And he gets, to a T, the difference between Louisiana and Texas (which is BIG).
I'd also recommend Jumpara Lahiri's short stories. As the Smock would say: Fab. You. Luss.
2. And, what's your favorite source for short stories? (You know, if you read them.)
Luck. Poking around 1/2 Price Books.
