Schönberg, after establishing the principles of serialism, was said to have remarked that there was still plenty of good music to be composed in the key of C Major – just not by him. In that spirit of respect I have drawn up a list of eight stories all of which, when I first read them, induced a twinge of envy, and for that reason lodged in my memory.

It’s no coincidence that they all in some way extend or distend the short story form.
