Let’s frame the discussion surrounding this post in a more positive and specific way (something I would’ve done earlier if not for this massive, all-encompassing head cold I’m suffering through).
What short fiction have you read in the last year that blew your socks off, exploded the back of your head, made you weak in the knees? And why?
Let’s forget silly things like whether what you read was published this year or last or the year before–or the decade before that. Just: what’ve you encountered that you loved, and that really “got” to you, no matter whether new or old?
