Fall Reading Recommendations

I love back to school time.

9781594487699HEspecially when my writing friends who are teachers aks for suggestions of books to have their classes read.

Even better when they ask for short story collections.

Here is a quick list provided in about 3 minutes after one such request by a friend on Facebook.

I only recognized one (Danielle Evans), which is both a shame and very exciting.

I am ready to dig in!

  • The Color Master by Aimee Bender
  • Monstress by Lysley Tenorio
  • At the Mouth of the River of Bees by Kij Johnson.
  • Spectacle by Susan Steinberg
  • Light Without Heat by Matthew Kirkpatrick
  • Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self by Danielle Evans
  • Battleborn by Claire Vaye Watkins
  • The Era of Not Quite by Douglas Watson
  • The World of a Few Minutes Ago by Jack Driscoll
  • I Want to Show You More is great by Jamie Quatro
  • Safe As Houses by Marie-Helene Bertino
  • Middle Men by Jim Gavin

  1. I can’t remember the name of the collection, but there is a great collection of short stories by a wonderful author named “Jen McConnell”. Check it out, I think you can get it on Amazon.
