The last short story that I read was "Empire" by Simon Brown. I'm actually reading an ARC of speculative fiction short stories right now, so I read this one earlier this evening.

I'm reading Kipling short stories just now, and yesterday's one was The Other Man.

I'm doing a BAFAB draw too to which all are welcome.

The Corner Shop, by Cynthia Asquith, from Roald Dahl's Book of Ghost Stories.

"Best New Horror" by Joe Hill, from his collection, 20th Century Ghosts.

Time, Again by Tim Maly. I read it online.

I'm sad to confess that I hardly ever read short stories, but all the great reviews people posted for Short Story September inspired me to try more. The last short story I read would have been "Judgment Day" from the Flannery O'Connor collection Everything That Rises Must Converge.

I'm glad that the book arrived safely. Enjoy may not be the right word, but I hope you enjoy it, it was an interesting read. This is the only book by Kennedy that I've read but I'd definitely like to try something else.

As for short stories, the last ones I read were in the collection, Down to a Sunless Sea, by Mathias B. Freese. Some of them were really quite dark and raw.

Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx

Hunters in the Snow by Tobias Wolff

I read Angela Carter's book of short stories, 'The Bloody Chamber.' I particularly enjoyed reading 'The Courtship of Mr Lyon.'

I read The lady with the dog by Anton Tjechov. (not certain the translation is correct but think so. I read it in swedish)

The Rocking Horse Winner from D. H. Lawrences' "Selected Tales".

I just re-read The Raven by Poe last week. Classic!

"Judith Castle" by David Mitchell from The Book of Other People.

The last short story I read was probably Ship Fever in the collection with the same title by Andrea Barrett. Remarkable and memorable.
