You may or may not know that the distinguished Jennifer Zobair is hosting a “Best Short Story I Have Ever Read (Asterisk)” Smackdown with pie over at her blog. One of the rules of this smackdown is that you can only offer up one story as the "best (asterisk)." But, because we recognize that most writers are also gluttons (asterisk), we are using this post for all of your short story seconds (asterisk)...those stories that you still want to rave about even though you really are only supposed to rave about one. Feel free to post as many short story titles as you like here!
What's Peanut eating? The right arm of a Christmas polar bear doll. He's after all of the other decorations too.
