August is Short Story Month

Completely and utterly stealing Nextread's fabulous idea from a few months ago, MFB have decided to host our own Short Story Month.

There will be short story reviews up each day for this month - just because they are fun and we felt the need to celebrate the importance of short stories in general. These vignettes and novellas are glimpses of greatness and have inspired me greatly in the past.

Short Story Month also means that all four of us here at MFB get the chance to share with you some of our favourite authors who have contributed to a large variety of really good anthologies. We will be doing science fiction, literary, new weird, horror, romance, YA and some kids fantasy anthologies, as well as some magical realism/urban fantasy stuff. A plethora of goodness in short form.

We hope you enjoy this feature as much as we will.

Long live anthologies and short stories!
