24 recommended short stories from my 2011 reading

24 'standout' short stories from my 2011 reading

In 2011, I read 96 short stories, many of them longer short stories and novelettes. Initially, I wanted to provide a list of all the stories I had read. After a little reflection, however, I thought that a blog post would be more useful if it were just a list of the standouts. Feel free to query as some stories are more 'literary' and others 'genre'. If you want to discover where a story can be found (anthology or journal title), just ask away.
