Short Stories

I hope to someday compile a list of short stories I enjoyed. The genre is often overlooked as novels are much more prestigious.

At the very top of my list will be Ingeborg Bachmann's "Undine Goes." Her marvelously poetic prose inspired me to write two short stories of my own, one of which comprises Hans' response to Undine, the narrator of Bachmann's story.

Another I read recently is "The Genie Lamp" by Carolyn Watson. It appears in Slice Magazine, issue 6.
