SHORT CIRCUIT - a guide to the Art of the Short Story
With all the to'ing and fro'ing of the last few weeks, I haven't had a chance to mention Short Circuit, Salt Publishing's guide to writing the short story. I have an essay in there on style. There are contributions from Clare Wigfall, Tania Hershman, Vanessa Gebbie, Lane Ashfeldt, Alison Macleod, Matthew Licht and Tobias Hill, among many others.
The book will arrive at this blog on its virtual tour at some point in the not too distant future in the arms of its very able editor, Vanessa Gebbie.
It is a LARGE volume, comprehensive in nature and nicely varied. It would make a lovely Christmas pressie for your local friendly short story nut. It has a 20% discount on the retail price at the mo, so is a recession friendly £11.99 stg.
Buy it here at Salt's site.
