The Midnight Reader

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.

August through October 2017
Only one title, not because nothing good was posted but because I have not been able to search them out and read them. Still, this one is a gem:
Ghostling by E. Catherine Tobler

July Best 2017

The Dead Father Cookbook by Ashley Boom Ashley Bloom:

What if I Fall by Anne Dafeta Anne Dafeta:

Ten Thousand Sleeping Beauties by Jocelyn Koehler Jocelyn Koehler:

Each of these are by writers without long publishing credentials but are excellent strong voices.
