Death of the Short Story

Short stories built science fiction into a cultural force to be reckoned with and launched the careers of countless stellar authors. Yet the short fiction market has seen a steep decline in the past few decades.

Is the short story dead? Your humble Geek Gab hosts recently spoke with Castalia House blogger Vlad James about the state of sci-fi short fiction. Why was it significant, and who are some of the brave souls striving to bring it back?

Bonus: we also chat about E.T.

Have a listen!



And don't forget to vote in the Dragon Awards. My nominated SF novel The Secret Kings is free on KU, and the whole series is less than 9 bucks right now.
