Happy Football Season from the folks at American Short Fiction!

The shortlist for the 2013 Man Booker Prize has been released. You can watch the Vine version or read a list that won’t give you a headache instead.

Good things abound for our friends at A Strange Object.The Austin Chronicle is simply raving over them. And there’s a wicked little book trailer getting the word out for their first release Three Scenarios in Which Hana Sasaki Grows a Tail by Kelly Luce. It comes out October 1st but you can pre-order here. (I’ve read it and – spoiler alert! – it’s a truly excellent collection of stories.)

You’re on your own for reading recommendations this week. Or how about this: Write something remarkable. Read that.
