The Short Review

This is a terrific website devoted exclusively to reviewing short story collections, and started by a friend from Tin House, Tania Hershman (herself the author of a new collection, The White Road & Other Stories–more on that later). It has a number of great features, including author interviews, links to other reviews, and a big push on buying independent. There are ongoing reviews of both current and older titles, and a blog.

I have my first review up now in the February edition of the The Short Review–of A Happy Man, by Axel Thormahlen–a book I wanted to like more than I did. But it’s worth a look, and it’s published by a Los Angeles press, Les Figues, doing some very interesting stuff.
