40 Inspiring Short Stories

A collection of 40 short stories and their takeaways designed to inspire a more positive outlook in readers, the new book on self-improvement "A Harvest of Change" by author Nabil N. Jamal (published by Partridge Singapore, a Penguin Random House Company) drives home the benefits inherent in each story

Song of the Silver Birds

A tribute to the victims of the 1995 Srebrenica genocide. While innocent people were killed summarily across Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war, the genocide in Srebrenica represented the pinnacle of the barbarity - not only because of the sheer number of victims and the short time-span in which they were murdered, but also because of the complicity of the UN peacekeepers who were supposed to prevent it.

Short Stories Make You Smarter

There are some lessons you won't learn in an MBA program - like how to deal with eccentric coworkers or a spouse involved in shady business deals. For that, you can turn to the many short works of literary fiction that focus on ordinary people trying to succeed professionally.

A Star-Filled Spoon

A tale of love, learning and loss between a father and a son in Srebrenica. A note from the author I miss my father. I am an adult with a family of my own, and he has been gone for 23 years, but still I miss him. It was December 12, 1992 when he was killed by a shell during the siege of Sarajevo. I was 19, my sister was 11. Our mother was 43, just like our father.

Best British Short Stories 2015

You might assume that an anthology with a title like this is going to be a genteel affair, perhaps because when we think of the form we often imagine a sort of archetypal New Yorker short story, which tends to follow the formula of Small and Poignant Domestic Events Hinting at a Dark Truth. Otherwise it’s the kind of magazine competition in, say, Grazia, illustrated by a floaty-dressed model aged about 19 staring into the distance with a typewriter in front of her.

We’re All Short Story Enthusiasts

It’s being said that short stories are making a comeback. Though I have to confess to a 30-year lapse from writing them, I don’t think the short story as a form ever went away. It has its solid tradition, its classic exponents, just as the novel does. In fact, long before there were things called novels there were short stories – the tales we all tell each other. As human beings we’re all short-story enthusiasts. It’s the novel that’s the oddity.

Humans VS Algorithms For Stories

In this Jan. 20, 2015 photo provided by Dartmouth College, Dan Rockmore, director of the Neukom Institute for Computational Science, poses on the Dartmouth campus in Hanover, N.H. Dartmouth is seeking artificial intelligence algorithms that create “human-quality” short stories, sonnets and dance music sets that will be pitted against human-produced literature, poetry and music selections.

Bitter Bronx: Thirteen Stories

Most people who read Jerome Charyn’s new book of short stories, “Bitter Bronx,” won’t know much about Robert Moses or what happened after the controversial “master builder’s” Cross-Bronx Expressway sliced through this borough and, according to many including the author, wrought upheaval.
