Flavorwire's Favorite Short Stories Of The Past Year
May is National Short Story Month, so we’re celebrating the tail end of it by honoring some short stories of the past year that are deserving of your attention. Although these diverge from Geraldine Brooks’s choices in The Best American Short Stories collection or those contained in PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories, we encourage you to pick either or both of these up if you’re interested in more tales from notable authors. Or, if you want stories from our neighbors across the Atlantic, there’s always Best European Fiction, which was edited by one of our favorite writers, Aleksandar Hemon.
