Short Stories - 9th Jun 2017

Everyone loves short stories, especially good ones! And because everyone does, we have a dedicated short-story section which is easy and pleasant to browse. As well as the books in the shop, we also have a huge selection of short story collections in our on-line stock.

For a long time, the short story was a rather badly treated poor relation and was not given the attention or acclaim it deserved. However, for some time now, it has been recognised as a valuable genre in its own right and has many enthusiastic and critical supporters. If you are not yet one of the fans, now is a good time to give it a go. For a start, it is nowhere near as daunting as deciding to read all the Russian greats or Proust's Remembrance of Things Past!

You could start off from a nationality point of view with collections of French, German, Latin American, New Zealand or Nigerian short stories or you could try a selection of a particular author such as Somerset Maugham or Owen Marshall. It doesn't matter where or how you start, just that you do. Maybe I am preaching to the converted!
