Read These: 5 Short Stories to Get Lost in This Weekend
I'm about to be a shamless editor. Yes, you've got your five short story recs on the way—and they're good ones!—but there's going to be a twist ending on this week's edition. You'll never see it coming. First, onto the list:
- At Buenos Aires Review, "The Sofa Sages" by Eitán Futuro, translated by Jennifer Croft
- At Vol. 1 Brooklyn, "Why the Things You Use Every Day Might Kill You #11" by Dolan Morgan
- At Necessary Fiction, "Borderline" by Thomas Michael Duncan
- At Corium, "Sleep of the Dead" by Rebecca King
And the finale: This week, I have an excerpt from my own novel up at Joyland, called "A Rembrandt" (and the reason for the photo of Brooklyn's Prospect Park up above). If you're game for another story , consider giving that one a read.
We'll just call it a bonus.
