How to create a must read short story collection

Pangea just went global with a terrific interview at Nokia Connects by Joel Willans.

The wire and shadow image is just beautiful, and I like the debate about the future for readers and writers of short stories.

"... unless people really start appreciating short stories and demanding them from bookshops, and getting to know the names of the good short stories writers who are writing now, and asking for the works of those excellent writers, publishers will continue to overlook them in favour of the endless tedious novels they churn out."

What better rallying call to buy Pangea? If you come to Blackwell's on Park Street next Thursday, 26th July, you can meet some of the authors, two of whom will be reading: Vanessa Gebbie and Tom Remer Williams.
