EDIT, 13 July: I think there’s enough interest to make this worth doing. Look out for more news in the next couple of days.
So I’ve been mulling over the idea of starting a short story discussion feature on the blog. Once a week, or maybe once every two weeks, I’d host a discussion (in post comments) on a short story. I’d aim to make the selection of stories diverse, but sticking to pieces available to read online for free. I’d anticipate starting with six to see how it goes. (EDIT: The model I’m looking at is what Torque Control did a few years ago, but with multiple genres.)
What I want to do first is find out what sort of interest there may be for the idea. So I have a couple of questions: in general, do you like the sound of this? And if so, would you prefer it to be weekly or fortnightly? (EDIT: I’ve thought of a third option, which would be to run it weekly, but in blocks of six stories with a gap between – let me know how that sounds as well.)
