Thanks, Anne's Friend. I'll try to remember that for next time.

I really like the addition of short stories and thanks essay for the link to Narrative. That may just be my new playground!

You're welcome, Sedona--they seem to have a very cool operation going there.

Fifty-two stories is a great resource for online short stories. Editor Cal Morgan has just kicked off year 2 of this project.

A loooong time ago, YesABibliophile posted a link to Words Without Borders in the websites about books and literature thread. It has a huge array of international fiction, professionally translated and available for free.

I haven't read much of it lately, but what I have read has been good. Most of the short stories do seem to be very short though. That's good for me as I have the attention span of a sugared-up child, but might not be to everyone's taste.

I love the addition of short stories, as I rarely get around to reading the books, or if I do I don't do it in time. I will have no excuses for not reading the short stories. *gulp*

There are a few stories by Connie Willis available here, and probably more by other authors although I haven't looked around too much. Of the Willis ones I've read (and loved) Fire Watch but none of the others.

Thanks for the link, Perthelia. Love speculative fiction! Fire Watch is definitely the best on that Willis list, and one of my favorites of hers, of course.

The Monsters of Templeton was one of the best books I read last year, so I'd definitely be interested in reading one of Groff's stories in April (or June or August, etc.).

Thank you for weighing in on that, CaitlinM. I've been thinking about the short story list for the year. Would we rather pick everything now, like we do with the books? Or should we pick the stories a month in advance, to reflect what we "feel like" at the time?
