May is Short Story Month

According to the website May is Short Story Month, “Short stories make the perfect intro to a new author’s work, a great way for readers to get a top-up from their favorite authors between novels, a perfect impulse purchase on a phone or e-reader.  After years of languishing in the shadows as magazines stopped publishing them and the big prize money went to novels, short stories are poised for a huge comeback.”

To find short story collections in the Marin County libraries, type Short Stories into the Search Box of the Encore Catalog.  For a slightly different list, search under Short Stories as a subject heading in the Classic Catalog, and then sort the results by date, newest to oldest.  Here are some new collections of short stories you might enjoy.
