Some recent additions to the shelves

Some recent excellent short story collections added to the shelves (stacks/boxes/piles) around the EWN abode include:

Noy Holland's What begins with bird (FC2, 2005), Daniel Grandbois' Unlucky Lucky Days (BOA Editions, Ltd., 2008), Molly McNett's one dog happy (University of Iowa Press, 2008) which is this year's John Simmons Short Fiction Award winner, Jeffery Renard Allen's Holding Pattern (Graywolf Press, 2008), and Nicholas Montemarano's if the sky falls (LSU Press, 2005).

I've had the chance to read at least one story from each and am anxious to follow up and read more and more from each of the titles as the single stories were excellent.

All seem well worth your own time if you are searching for a collection to read soon!

hi Dan,
i liked the fact that the title you cite are all small, independent and literary presses. that's to be appreciated. regarding short stories, may i be forgiven if i bring to attention a slice of my own at ?
it's from my newly published collection the idol lover and other stories (ithuriel's spear).
