Issue 7 is here and Spring means a redesign

The Spring issue of The Short Review is here, and with it a new look: goodbye Courier, hello Gentium. Leave a comment let us know what you think of the new design! (To see it properly you need the Gentium font, which you can download here.)

Ten new reviews of short story collections:

Bang Crunch,
Neil Smith's debut collection

Invisible Cities, the Italo Calvino classic

Phobic, Comma Press' anthology of horror stories that did scare our reviewer!

Sophie Hannah's Fantastic Book of Everybody's Secrets

Perverted by Language: Fiction inspired by The Fall

William Trevor's latest collection, Cheating at Canasta

For The Relief of Unbearable Urges,
Nathan Englander's award-winning debut collection from 1999

Dangerous Space, Kelley Eskridge's sensual feminist science fiction stories

Crimini, the Bitter Lemon book of Italian Crime Fiction

Jason Brown's follow up collection, Why the Devil Chose New England for His Work

As always, we've asked authors to talk to us about their books. This month, Jason Brown, Neil Smith, Kelley Eskridge, Cristina Henriquez and Sophie Hannah, reveal how they feel about people reading their books and what the word "story" means to them. Author interviews are here.

The new look is terrific. Great job. Looking forward to reading the reviews, particularly William Trevor's new collection and the Phobic horror shorts.
