Reading list

I’ll be taking a Short Story Writing workshop soon with the incomparable Kristine Kathyrn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith. Here’s the reading list of five anthologies that I need to read in six weeks. Care to join me?

  • Best American Short Stories 2007 edited by Stephen King
  • Best Science Fiction & Fantasy of the Year Volume 5 edited by Jonathan Strahan
  • By Hook or By Crook and 30 More of the Best Crime and Mystery Stories of the Year edited by Ed Gorman & Martin H. Greenberg
  • Deadly Promises by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Dianna Love, Cindy Gerard, and Laura Griffin
  • Double The Heat by Lori Foster, Deirdre Martin, Elizabeth Bevarly, and Christie Ridgway

    I’ve started with DOUBLE THE HEAT since that’s the genre I’m least familiar with. I’ve also read a couple from the Year’s Best edited by Stephen King. I’ll do the HOOK OR BY CROOK and Best SF/F last since I’m most familiar with those genres.
