Book Lists

Short Stories as Selected by a Crack Team

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.
