I read short stories and essays pretty frequently in between/during reading novels or other larger works. The shorter format is in fact my favorite form of literature. I like them because they are readable in one sitting and contain at least one complete idea. Personally, I would be interested in creating conversation around this style of writing, though less formally than with the official bookclub. My thought is that if any of us reads a short story or literary essay(like those written by Borges or DFW) of interest we could just make a thread here and if people want to read that themselves and comment on it at there leisure it would be good enough. What do you think @Remember_Summer_Days ? What do the rest of you guys think?

"those who walk from omelas". Short, spicy, fucked-up, and makes you ask some questions. Love it

"To build a fire". Probably my favorite of Jack London's works.
