December was full of wonderful short fiction, and in this monthly roundup I am making space for some special mentions. I'm very sad to say that December 2017 brought us the last issue of Gamut.

Drop them in the water, sit down,… Continue reading 22 glorious short stories I read in September

20 splendiferous short stories I read in August

But, yes, there were still so, so many good stories to read. Right before I put… Continue reading 20 splendiferous short stories I read in August

19 wondrous short stories I read in July

I traveled a lot throughout July (but then I always travel a lot in July). The month included long flights to Sweden, and a lot of travel within Sweden as well, visiting family and friends.
