National Short Story Day

Today is national short story day, appropriately on the shortest day. Information about events, readings, recordings and downloads are available on the website for the day, including one in Manchester this evening.

How do you celebrate National Short Story Day? Easy, really - just read a short story. In the spirit of the day I've made a quirkly little story that's never been published, available on my website. There are all sorts of stories, of course, from one's that just tell a tale, to ones that have a twist, to stories, like this one, which are more conceptual. The story is called "Backwards" and you can read it here.

As for recommendations... I like my stories to be a little macabre, and this brilliant classic from A.M. Homes is certainly that! Read "A Real Doll" here.
