Book Meme Day 17- Short Stories

August 27, 2010

Today’s installment of the Book Meme asks:

Day 17 – Favorite story or collection of stories (short stories, novellas, novelettes, etc.)

Although it was made into my favorite movie of all time, “Angus,” by Chris Crutcher. is not my favorite short story. One of the only times I like the movie better.

I think Connie Willis would have to be my favorite short story anthology, but I’m not sure which one I would pick. All of her short stories have the strange twists of screwball comedy, and a delight in language that I love. But, her sense of humor has a very specific quirk, so I would caution against reading an entire short story collection of hers in its entirety. They’re all good, though. Fantastically good.

Impossible Things

Fire Watch

Miracle and Other Christmas Stories

I should go back and catch up on Connie Willis’s novels, too. I think I’ve missed a few. She tackles questions of time travel particularly well.
