I’ve seen plenty of blogs and websites that review longer works and movies, but I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled across a website called “The Short Tale Review.”
At first, I thought they were a literary magazine specializing in flash fiction, but I quickly realized they published short reviews of short stories. They featured classics, like Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery,” as well as brand new works by contemporary authors.
Here is a brief excerpt:
“As an ‘adult’ story about the world of mermaids, mermen and merfolk this could be, let’s be quite honest, a bit silly and childish in the wrong hands. Even more so when used as a device to question sexual politics. Thankfully Sara Codair is an adept enough storyteller to navigate us through these potential pitfalls.”
Their sight is a great way to promote and give the often overlooked short story authors a taste of the kind of attention they might get if they were publishing novels.
