THE SUNDAY SHORT STORY REPORT

Thank goodness we’re working on speed this month.  I can’t wait to get faster. 🙂

Here’s the reading list for this week.  A little light, I admit, but a damn good selection.

26.  “A Loss for _____” by Brenta Blevins (ChiZine) Surprisingly emotional end.  Really sa- sa- sa- — total bummer to imagine this happening to the world.

27.  “Pugelbone” by Nadia Bulkin (ChiZine) Absolutely stunning world-building.  This is going to stick with me for a long time coming, I can tell.

28.  “Last Days” by Dave Chua (ChiZine) Not really original in terms of subject — zombies roam the Earth — but the imagined details are memorable.  My favorite bit:  “Jo folded paper airplanes of the books we no longer read, and threw them out the car window.”

That’s it, folks!  Short and sweet.  I think this is the first time I’ve read anything from ChiZine.  Good stuff.  Dark. Apparently, they’re on a temporary hiatus to overhaul their website (so they’re not currently taking submissions), but will be back with bells on come April 1st.  I can’t wait. 🙂  In the meantime, their archives of past issues is still up and accessible.

Happy reading!
