Fictionally Brief

Wigleaf has put together a top 50 list of (very) short fictions published online in 2007.

I haven’t read them all, but of the ones I have Martha Cooley’s "Siena, Italy, 9 August 2007" and Elizabeth Gumport’s "The Pool House" stand out. I also really liked Erin Fitzgerald’s "Four Sieges" from the "long shortlist" — in some of these stories, the voices can seem a bit samey when read back to back, but Erin’s doing something else.

Also? Robert Doisneau pictures.
