The Short Review April 2009

A short interlude from the existential identity discussions - and back to short stories! I have just posted/published/made my eyes screwy to upload April 2009 Issue of The Short Review. Here is a little about what we have this month:

In Memoriam: The Short Review is deeply saddened by the death of J G Ballard, the author of 22 short story collections and 19 novels. For a taste of Ballardian wonders, read our review of the The Complete Short Stories.

To Elizabeth Strout, winner of this year's Pullitzer Prize for Fiction for Olive Kittredge, a collection of interlinked short stories.

We bring you reviews of ten more this month, from Babylon to big worlds, creatures of the earth, eclipses and unlucky lucky days which are nothing like an ocean, to last night, where our story begins, with a little Javanese and some gay romance.

And, of course, as many author interviews as we can muster - Mary Miller, Jim Tomlinson, Alix Ohlin, Daniel Grandbois, Kiril Bozhinov and Andre Mangeot, ! Happy reading

Hello Tania,
I read your story The White Road yesterday and the memory of it won't leave me alone. It was surprising and beautifully written and I'm looking forward to the other stories. Well done,
Anna May Mangan
