Short Stories on the Up

I was going to post about a couple of recent Guardian articles which seem to indicate a resurgence of interest in the short story, but Tania Hershman has beaten me to it with an excellent post on the Short Review blog, which I do recommend you read.

What she doesn't mention there is that this resurgence is reflected by the judges of the Orange New Writing prize, who have commended Tania herself for her wonderful collection, The White Road and Other Stories! Very many congratulations to Tania!

A recent article in the NY Times notes a similar trend. The article is called "Brevity's Pull: In Praise of the American Short Story".

Yes, Nick, I should have mentioned that Tania also writes about this article in her post. Thanks for the link, though.
