I left a couple of slots open in the Sunday Story Society schedule; but now I’ve decided what’s going in them. So here is what we’ll be talking about for the  rest of the year:

19 Aug: “Atlantic City” by Kevin Barry

02 Sept: “The Merchant of Shadows” by Angela Carter

16 Sept: “Two Ways of Leaving” by Alois Hotschnig

30 Sept: “Drifting House” by Krys Lee

14 Oct: “Isobel Avens Returns to Stepney in the Spring” by M. John Harrison

28 Oct: “The Disappearance of Miranda Željko” by Rebecca Makkai

11 Nov: “Reflux” by José Saramago

25 Nov: “Immersion” by Aliette de Bodard

09 Dec: The winner of the BBC International Short Story Award (to be announced)

You can click on the titles above to read any of the stories. If the BBC Short Story Award is running to the same schedule as last year, it should be announced at the end of September, and the winning story made available on line shortly after. Assuming it is, we’ll discuss it in the December slot.

Any queries on the above, drop me a line; and don’t forget you can also follow the Society on Twitter and Facebook.]

See you back here this time next week to discuss Kevin Barry’s “Atlantic City”!
