Favorite Fiction (Feb & March 2013) plus new ways to find my faves

Over at io9 my list of best short stories from February and March is now live. Those ten stories represent my very top picks, but there are several more I hearted over the past couple of months. I listed them below.

Before we get to that, a couple of things! First, I created a Flipboard magazine recently where I intend to collect all the stories I favorite each month. It’s the same list you’ll see here, so it’s basically another way to see the same info. With a Flipboard magazine you’ll get an update every time I add a new story and won’t have to wait for the end of the month. Plus, the stories will just show up in your regular Flipboard, no need to do anything extra. To subscribe, search for “ktempest” in Flipboard. The magazine is called Fantastic Flippin’ Fiction.

I mentioned in January’s post that I was looking for a venue where I could discuss short stories in depth. Not just the ones I like, but any one worth discussing, including stories I don’t like. To that end, I’m doing some experimenting. I created a Google+ community. I intend for it to be a participatory thing, not just me. Anyone can post links to stories, start a discussion, or make recommendations. If you have a Google account, you can join.

Now, onto the picks!

Visit my Favorite Fiction tag to see all the other short stories I’ve liked so far this year.

    The problem with racism today is that it has become intelligent. When we look back at racism of the past, we look back at people with a backward way of thiking; In some sense, people of less intellect than of today’s.
    Today, however, we will find that gradually racism has a new defined intellect and intelligence. For example you will hear parents make their case of their race going into extinction if their children do not marry or settle with a partner of the same race. A sort of emotional blackmail. However, under the same breath such parent would loudly state how unracist they are and give a list of their acquintances, friends, collegues etc.. that are of a different race.

    If you fancy this topic, my best pick is an ebook on kindle called Kiss of Thorns, by Lilliane Rosse
