Short stories lacking coverage? The genre dying out? Not yet. The folks at Harper Perennial are celebrating the short story by sharing a new one every week this year on Fifty-Two Stories — some classics from established authors, some new stories from relatively unknowns. Over the last few weeks they have published pieces from Mary Gaitskill, Louise Erdrich, Willa Cather, and others.
Check out Fifty-Two Stories if you would like a quick dip in some fiction of the short variety. It's free.
