Short Fiction Reviews: March 2017

March 2017 Short Fiction Reviews

April is very almost over and it’s beyond time for my collection of micro-reviews of all the short fiction I read in March. It was a month of some really stellar fiction, even including—rarely, for cowardly little me—a couple of genuine horror stories! Click on any story in the table of contents to jump right […]

Short Fiction Reviews: February 2017

February 2017 Short Fiction Reviews

EDIT: Okay, so I’m an idiot. I scheduled this post on April 9th, and didn’t actually bother to check if it posted. Apparently, for whatever technical reasons, it didn’t.

Favourite Short Fiction of 2016

Best Short Fiction of 2016

It’s somehow March 2017 already—time, as They Might Be Giants so accurately said, is marching on (and now I’m even older). But I just can’t quite let 2016 go until I’ve rounded up my most favourite short fiction published in it. So what follows is my favourite short fiction from 2016, with a link to the reviews […]

Short Fiction Reviews: January 2017

January Short Fiction 2017

I saw my first snowdrops of the year this week, on the day I turned 28. I’m fond of February, not only because it’s my birth month, but because it’s caught, suspended, between two seasons: it can be either the coldest month of winter, or it can be the prelude to spring. This year it […]

Favourite Media of 2016

Best Media of 2016

It’s 2017 already, but it’s still dark outside most of the day, and fuck me if it isn’t bloody cold. In this bleak midwinter, I want to take some time to look back at the media I loved best in 2016. Since there’s way too much to choose from, I’ll be looking at my favourite short fiction […]

December’s Short Fiction Reviews

December Short Fiction

It’s January. I’m sitting on my sofa, swaddled in a blanket, fingers going white, watching the relentless news scroll by. I’m beginning to miss last year, when my news feed was only full of the deaths of beloved celebrities. This is my monthly collection of micro-reviews for all the short fiction, new and old, I […]
