Best Online Short Stories July 2017

I have created a new feature, a monthly Best Online Short Stories list so welcome to the first edition.

This is a list of the best short stories I’ve read in the past month. These stories were published online, though some may also have been published in a print journal or e-zine. These online stories represent excellent work, often by new writers, and I simply wish them well and a wider audience.

If you read something great this month, share it.

  • The Dead Father Cookbook by Ashley Booms

A creepy story that may say too much about me in the fact I thought it was fun.

  • What if I Fall by Anne Dafeta

The tension and pacing are very well done.

  • Ten Thousand Sleeping Beauties by Jocelyn Koehler

A thoughtful, poignant tale with big themes in a small space.

Each of these stories are by writers without long publishing credentials but they are all strong writers with excellent voices.
