My favourite short fiction reads of 2013

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.
