I constantly find myself running out of reading time, and as a remedy to this problem I’ve taken to carrying a book with me everywhere. You never know when you’re going to get to your next meeting twenty minutes early, or your bus is running late, or you just need to take a break from reality.
That’s the great thing about short stories. If you have 15-20 minutes, you have time to get away to another place, to be another person, and be back in time to get to the next thing on your to-do list.
If you’re looking for your next great read, check out this Goodreads Giveaway. We’re giving away five paperback copies of our latest anthology, For the Road: Short Stories of America’s Highways. (The book sells on Amazon.com for $14.95.)
Enter to win your free copy of For the Road here.
This anthology features short stories by ten authors from around the country. From bizarre travelling companions, to ghost stories, to madness described in eloquent prose, For the Road has a little something for everyone.
If you’re expecting tales of good Samaritans and happy travelers, you may want to take another route. For the Road explores the spectacular fear we hold for the unknown, as embodied by the lonesome highway. Seasoned travelers may laugh at the villains and specters within these pages, while homebodies will make sure to lock their doors a little earlier in the evening.

Hagridden is a haunting drama that unflinchingly approaches race, culture, apathy and humanity stripped to its core. The novel follows two women struggling to survive in the war-torn South as the Civil War tumbles to an end.
I’ve read it, and I can honestly say it’s as good as it sounds. 🙂
While you’re at it, check out this giant, werewolf-themed street race going on next month. Journey to the End of the night combines elements of a 5k with a game of tag and hide and go seek. It’s free to participate in the race and there’s a giant party at Gateway Film Center at the end.

Most of us know Roald Dahl for his imaginative children’s books- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Fastastic Mr. Fox and so on.
Several years ago I was first exposed to Tales of the Unexpected, a collection of short stories he wrote mainly in the 1940s, and was pleasantly surprised by his fiction for adults. All of the darkest elements of his children’s stories come together in poignant, funny tales of life and death and self-ruin.
His collections of short stories for adults demonstrate the same creativity as his chidren’s books, but combined with a mature, sinister realism and sharp wit. His sardonic tales of irony and just deserts are contemplative, but still entertaining, light reads.
If you’re into short stories, Roald Dahl is a master. This ain’t your granpappy’s chocolate factory.
