So it turns out there’s a lot of stuff I like. I like our new dishwasher and how it sings a happy song when it’s done–oh, I am unreasonably gleeful about that dishwasher. I like the fact that strawberries are in season. But that’s not why I’m doing these round-up posts–I’m doing an every-so-often post of short stories I’ve read and liked, that you might like too. Or you can link things you’ve liked in the comments! Up to you.
Two of these are not short stories. One is a project–my friend Hanne is doing a crowdfunded food and domestic thought project that should be interesting. I subscribed to the last round of A Girl’s Gotta Eat, and it was full of recipe and food essay goodness. The other is a poem: a May poem my friend Peg wrote.
Okay, but on with the short stories:
Monkey King, Faerie Queen, by Zen Cho (in Kaleidotrope)
The Snake-Oil Salesman and the Prophet’s Head, by Shannon Peavey (in BCS)
Remembery Day, by Sarah Pinsker (in Apex)
Sun’s East, Moon’s West, by Merrie Haskell (in Lightspeed)
