More stories added

Further to the five authors listed in the previous post, we now have agreement from Christopher Burns (pictured), Alan Beard, Adam Marek, Lee Rourke, Philip Langeskov and John Burnside to reprint their stories from, respectively, the Warwick Review (twice), Riptide, Ambit, Five Dials and the Sunday Times Magazine.

I published a slightly stroppy letter in the Guardian Review at the weekend suggesting that Granta magazine could do more to support the short story in Britain. Their spring, summer and autumn numbers this year included hardly any British short stories. Plenty of short fiction from American and Pakistani writers, and no shortage of memoir, journalism, essays and novel extracts from British writers, but very few short stories. No doubt the winter issue will appear any day now stuffed with new stories by British authors and I’ll look a bit of an idiot.
