March 20 - June 20, 2010

This is the “Spring into Short Stories” challenge. The goal is to read some of those short stories many of us have gathering wool on our shelves or downloaded on our computers, such as the many I personally have saved.

The stories can be included within an anthology or stand alone.

Here are the rules:

1. The story must be less than 50 pages.

2. The story can be any genre.

That’s pretty simple, isn’t it? So, as you can see, there isn’t a lot of work to this challenge.

Anyone who wishes to participate must sign up by March 19 to be eligible for the prize drawing. However, you can join in at any time during the challenge.

Here’s how to get started:

1. Become a follower of this blog.

2. Add a comment to the sign-up post letting me know you’re participating.

Once you begin reading your stories, do a short review on your own blog, then add a comment and link at the end of the post here under the appropriate week.

For those who would like to participate but don't have a blog, you can leave a short review here.

** UPDATE: Since we've had a couple people join the challenge the last couple days, I've decided to extend the deadline for being eligible for the drawing to April 1!

Week Three

April 4 to April 10


  1. I have my first story review ready to post. Because I am a high school librarian, my posts may have some content beyond the review, so make sure to scroll to the part of the post with the review. I'm excited to read some of the other stories you all are reviewing.

  2. My second story review:

    The Grave of Lost Stories by William T. Vollmann
