Booking Through Thursday:
1. Short Stories? Or full-length novels?
I love them both. I read more short stories when I was writing fiction; once I get out of this "fallow field" stage that has gone on for much too long, I expect I'll spend more time reading them again.
2. And, what's your favorite source for short stories? (You know, if you read them.)
Individual collections (although I rarely read them straight through); BASS and O. Henry and New Stories from the South; literary magazines (the late Story, Georgia Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, etc.); the New Yorker; various story anthologies from college and used book stores.
