2011 is the Year of the Short Story

Year of the Short Story Yosstini [1]2011 is YOSS [2], hoss. That’s right, 2011 has been declared the Year of the Short Story. From the manifesto [2]:

We believe in putting an end, once and for all and upon a time, to the publishing industry’s dour and potentially self-fulfilling prophecy that “Short story collections don’t sell.” We feel that when people stop perpetuating this gloomy statement, it will cease to be true.

Hear, hear!

For the record, Tightrope [3] has published a number of short story collections – most recently, The Girl on the Escalator [4], by Jim Nason – as well as Got No Secrets, [5] by the fabulous Danila Botha, Your Love is Murder or the Case of the Mangled Pie [6], by Paul Hoang,  After the Fires [7], by Ursula Pflug, among others. Check ‘em out, and let us know what you think!
