Short Story Reading - April/May 

So, yeah, my keeping track of what I've been reading hasn't been kept up to date. Not that I haven't been making the notes, but last couple of months have been hectic. So I've not followed those notes by posting the details. Going to make up for that now as we start June and I start a new list.

At same time, it feels like after a surge of reading at start of year I've not been doing as many short stories in the last two months. Which may just be an impression, rather than a reality. Certainly I've been doing more reading of novels, novellas and graphic novels in last while - so there is a balance to be had. Though, part of the short story spike comes from listening to podcasts - so that is a different time use. But then, I have been catching up on Ars Paradoxica, The Bright Sessions, Rabbits and the new series of Alice Isn't Dead. Oh, and of course the finale of the wonderful The Scottish Podcast.
