Hello everyone and welcome to the first part of my Short Stories Challenge for 2018. In part five of my challenge in 2017, like many of the other parts, I had some absolutely fantastic finds like Seeing Double by Sara Maitland, Unplugged by Dianne Gray and The Man Who Would Not Shake Hands by Stephen King. However, I also had some that I wasn’t particularly fussed about, like The Man From Mars by Margaret Atwood and Freaks by Tess Gerritsen, both of which were huge disappointments. Here’s what I’ve got lined up for the first few months of 2018:
Books And Roses by Helen Oyeyemi from the collection What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours.
The Apple Tree by Daphne du Maurier from the collection The Birds And Other Stories.
The Balloon Hoax by Edgar Allan Poe from the collection The Best Short Stories Of Edgar Allan Poe.
Dibblespin by Angela Slatter from the collection Sourdough And Other Stories.
Remmy Rothstein Toes The Line by Karin Slaughter (stand-alone).
Why The Yew Tree Lives So Long by Kate Mosse from the collection The Mistletoe Bride And Other Haunting Tales.
A Child’s Problem by Reggie Oliver from the collection A Book Of Horrors.
At The Mountain Of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft from the collection The Definitive H.P. Lovecraft.
