2013 was the first year in which I tracked all of the short fiction I read. In total, I read 154 flash fictions, short stories, and novelettes, 17 of which made it onto my on-going Recommended Reading list here. Without further ado – and in no particular order – my 3 favourite short fiction reads of 2013* were…
The Death Drive of Rita, Nee Carina by Ray Cluley, published in Black Static #31
Stray Dogs by James Cooper, published in Black Static #33
Slider by David Niall Wilson, published in Shock Totem #1
* note: stories I read in 2013, not necessarily published in the same year.
