Issue 10 August 2008: The Competition Issue

A truly international theme: three collections from Down Under, Chinese short-shorts in honour of the Olympics, stories of Filipino Americans. Also: two shots of science fiction, two authors with middle initials, a "bracing" anthology and a liberal sprinkling of fabulist fantasy. All available at The Short Review.

And here's your chance to win one of this month's books: Paddy O'Reilly's stunning debut collection The End of the World. All you have to do is answer these three questions:
  1. How many authors in their author interviews said they had just read Miranda July's debut collection, No-one Belongs Here More than You? (HINT: use the GOOGLE site search from the Short Review home page)
  2. How many categories does Nathan Englander's collection, For the Relief of Unbearable Urges, appear in? (HINT: see categories page)
  3. Which letter is the most popular choice to begin the titles of short story collections? (HINT: See Reviews page)
Email your answers to
by August 14th. First correct answer wins the book!
