Favourite Short Fiction

I intend to feature rather more detail in the following catalogue, but limited time has meant that for the moment I can only list a rather haphazard array of short stories, all of which have managed to unsettle me to the extent that they have stayed in my mind for a long time. If you get the chance I’d recommend you check them out; I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

  1. I’d have to agree with a fair few of those too. Pop Art in particular is one of my most favourite stories of all time, in any genre, an absolutely gorgeous story. And More Tomorrow was superb, my introduction to Michael Marshall Smith’s short work, and I haven’t been disappointed since.
