May is Short Story Month. To celebrate, Andrea Routley (who knows something about fine short stories herself, and is one of the forces behind Caitlin Press in BC) lined up a crack team of short story writers to put together a short story playlist. The team comprises Janine Alyson Young, Eliza Robertson and John Gould. The list is awesome. BIOS: Born to backpacking ski-bums in the Eighties, Janine Alyson Young lives on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia with her husband and little son. Her debut story collection, Hideout Hotel, is out now./ Eliza Robertson was the winner of the 2013 Commonwealth Short Story Prize and was a finalist for the CBC Short Story Prize. Her debut story collection, Wallflowers, is out now./ John Gould is the author of two books of very short stories¬— including Kilter, a finalist for the Giller prize—and the novel Seven Good Reasons Not to Be Good. He teaches at the University of Victoria, and is completing a third collection of sudden fiction.
