New Short Stories

GeektasticThe Restless DeadIf I needed to think of a slogan for this post it would probably be something like “Short stories: not just for English class anymore!”   You might associate short stories with assigned reading, but some amazing authors are putting their stamp on short fiction.  We have two new collections in now at the library: 

The first is, “Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd.”  Do I even have to say anything after that title?  Fandom, RPGs, Buffy, Jedis, Rocky Horror…this book has all that and more.  There are 29 short stories from authors including Libba Bray, Scott Westerfeld, Garth Nix, John Green, and Wendy Mass.   

“The Restless Dead: Ten Original Stories of the Supernatural” is perfect for all you horror fans, especially with Halloween right around the corner.  Authors including M.T. Anderson, Annette Kurtis Clause, Holly Black, and Marcus Sedgwick bring to life tales of grave-robbing, poison, vampires, necromancers and more.

If you could get your favorite authors together to write a collection of short stories, who would the authors be, and what would you want them to write about?
