The Short Review

Here's a good idea: The Short Review (thanks to Titiana for drawing my attention to this). The short story is a much-neglected form. A short story can do much that a novel can't. They can be more experimental, surreal, symbolic and adventurous than a longer piece and can lodge in the mind for longer. I have heard that the short story is the ideal form for modern life and yet collections generally sell badly and are often ignored. The Short Review is aiming to combat this.

Anyway, it looks good and I intend to keep a watch on this.
