The Great Short Story Volleyball Game

Post by Zach on Tue Apr 17, 2012 2:19 pm

Hello, all. I saw the music volleyball game over in the music thread and thought I'd start something similar over here. One person posts the name of a short story along with the author. The next person says a few things about the story, then posts a different one, and so on, and so forth. However, I think we should use spoiler tags if we plan on revealing anything about the plot. I've quoted Ken's note about spoiler tags below. I figured this would be a cool way to expose each other to some really awesome reads. If you haven't read the story of the last poster, maybe you should check it out. Okay, here we go.


"The Man Who Drew Cats"- Michael Marshall Smith

There are tags her that are made to avoid spoiling something for someone. Appropiately, they are:

[ spoiler][ /spoiler]

Without the spaces, of course. Using them will make something look like this:

Spoiler:
Gigli really wasn't that bad.
Just click on it and it'll show the spoiler. Again, seems self-explanatory, but let us please use them.

"The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury

I read this story a long, long time ago and it stuck with me. When I began teaching, it came into my mind again, and I remembered how fantastic it was and how profound. Now I am able to share it with my students and hopefully create more lovers of Bradbury's work!

"A Better Life" by Chris F. Holm.

I read this story well over a year ago and it still sticks in my head. One of the most memorable endings I've ever read in a short story. Honestly, most of the stories in his anthology, "8 Pounds", are fantastic.

"Gramma" by Stephen King.

One of King's absolutely creepiest tales, and one of the few stories I've seen to incorporate the Cthulhu mythos that was actually scary.
