A short story alone is just way too short to bother with unless you mean short stores that make up a collection.

If it is the collection, then you have to be careful what's nominated as you don't want one of these short story collections from different authors that could spoil a book series.

To keep from missing out on some of last years categories (Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy) since there are new categories taking up quite a few months already and a few more that could get chosen (Banned Books and YA seem popular), I'll nominate Speculative Fiction as a category. At least it will preempt all the quibbling about what fits in what category.

For those that do not know what Speculative Fiction is...

Quote:
Speculative fiction is an umbrella term encompassing the more fantastical fiction genres, specifically science fiction, fantasy, horror, weird fiction, supernatural fiction, superhero fiction, utopian and dystopian fiction, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction, and alternate history in literature as well as related static, motion, and virtual arts
As for the quibbling, that will stop when the combination categories that don't work stop.
Thanks for the nomination and the explanation of what speculative fiction is. If it had not already received enough nominations I would have added one.

Third Books by Native Japanese Authors.

Second Classics.

Lol. No actually. If I was trying to fill some gaps it would have been books published in 1973.

I think I'm in my own world when it comes to humour. I specifically chose the time period to fit in between the older than 25 years classic literature and less than 10 years old modern literature.

I'll second Urban Fantasy. I'm looking forward to the arguments about whether the Merry Gentry books have too much sex in them for any genre other than erotica.

That would be an interesting discussion.

Before we vote, we need a definition for Short Stories.

Is it a single short story or is it a collection of short stories?
