It seems the consensus is growing that short stories are about to make a massive comeback into mainstream popularity with the sudden awareness of ebooks, digital literature, and internet lit mags. I’m seeing this everywhere, and I mean everywhere. On blogs, in the news, on forums. Everywhere.
Personally, I think it could happen. As a reader, I’m finding more fulfillment out of reading short stories (online and in books) during my lunch break and in that space just before bedtime simply for the fact it’s hard for me to digest a novel these days. I’ve just got too much going on. And I suspect other people might be finding the same thing.
But I’d like to know what you think.
