Stephen King on The Best American Short Stories 2007

Leonard Lopate and Stephen King talk about 2007’s best short stories, but more importantly, talk about the threat of the death of the short story (which I love, so much; regardless of genre).

Being a lover of literature, and relishing the time I have to read, when I can — this interview is meaty (audio 30 minutes).

EastOfTheWeb: A website devoted to short stories indexed by Genre and age demographic (some good stories here for those who want to read some fiction, but not necessarily get involved in a large, full-length novel.) Some stories are by very famous authors that are now out of copyright, others by unknowns, but very good tales.
