Short Story Saturday: The Meme

What Is It?

Short Story Saturday is a chance to review novellas or short stories and share them with other folks who like short fiction. We're kicking off December 5, 2009.

Do I have to review a whole anthology?

No. The whole idea came from a discussion about how hard it is to review big anthologies with lots of entries. You CAN review a whole anthology and you can still link to the meme, but you don't have to.

What if I want to just talk about anthologies or the short story format and not do an actual review?

That's cool too. We're easy.

How do I join?

Sign up on the Mr. Linky and add "Short Story Saturday" to your tags (this gets you into the Technorati search). It would also be nice if you include a link back to the hosting post in your post.

Alpha Heroes is a romance blog, but I'm too cool for romance. Does that mean I can't participate?

First of all, I think you mean: you're not cool enough for romance, but that's just me. Short Story Saturday is genre-agnostic. Any work of short fiction is good. For now we're excluding poetry and non-fiction.

What's the deal with you and Literary Escapism?

We're swapping months. We figure it's a good idea to have backup. I've got even months, and she's got odds *resists obvious joke*.

Where did those awesome badges come from and where can I get one?

Jackie did them and they are indeed awesome. Feel free to lift them from right here, and use in your sidebar and/or your SSS posts.

What a cute meme, did you ever pick a winner for your contest?

I'm not sure if I will explictly join this, but this may be some good impetus to read more short stories. For some bizarre reason, I actually have a hard time reading short things; they actually make me get antsy. Maybe it's time to try to rectify this. Hm.

Very good idea!

Are you calling me an oddball? Wouldn't be the first time. :P

I think I'm going to start diving into that Mammoth Book fof Vampire Romance I have sitting up here.

Oh, come on, Jackie. You can see that I clearly resisted calling you an oddball. I merely implied it. ;-)

I just mowed down three anthos - where do I sign up?

Nicola O. said...

M, just stop back here next Saturday and there will be a Mr. Linky!


IHBG, I haven't yet. *blush* Believe it or not, I'm waiting until I get the right boxes from the post office, otherwise I might never get them in the mail... the USPS is my nemesis.
