Favourite short stories for October


“Swan Lake for Beginners” - by Heather O’Neill

A sweetly absurd tale about cloning ballet dancers.


Variations on an Apple - by Yoon Ha Lee

The Apple of Discord, alternate timestreams, and a city.



These two go together:

eyes I dare not meet in dreams - by Sunny Moraine

About the fridging of women, and a resistance to it, and does it make any difference?


Let's Tell Stories of the Deaths of Children - by Margaret Ronald

On the fridging of children. And the forgetting of old goddesses. And temptation and the lies that support it.
