Story Sundays

Story Sundays is a weekly feature that seeks to prompt and share discussion on, as well as promote reading of, short stories, which we believe are an underrated source of fictional enjoyment and insight. All stories discussed will be available to read online, for free. The feature was created at Fat Books and Thin Women in January 2011, adopted at Novel Niche in September 2011, and is set to continue for the foreseeable future of many, many Sundays. The full list of stories covered so far at Fat Books and Thin Women can be found here.
