Now it is time to give a little love to those little stories in your life. Share your love for your favorite shorts of any form. What is a short story or novella that doesn't get the attention that it deserves? Recommend to readers what shorts you would recommend they start with. How about listing some short story anthologies based upon genres or authors?Uhhhhh, my reaction to this topic, like Cayce's, is basically ??????
I almost wasn't gonna do an Armchair BEA post today since I honestly don't really have much to say about either of the topics, but I decided I'd do a short post anyway for this topic, since I have actually read two collections of short stories..... by Neil Gaiman. I've already mentioned him in both of my Armchair BEA posts so far, so this should probably come as no surprise to anybody, but yes, I loved them lots and lots and lots.
Of the two, I remember I probably liked Fragile Things a tad more than Smoke and Mirrors, but they were both excellent. I just love Neil Gaiman's particular brand of weird and creepy, and that comes through so beautifully in all these short stories. And let us take this moment to appreciate those pretty covers, which look even prettier in real life. (My favourite has got to be the Neverwhere cover though. MY PRECIOUSSSS.)
Tell me your short story/novella feels, people! I'm sure some of you actually have those feels, unlike me.
