Neil Gaiman weighs in on genre fiction vs. literary fiction
For those of you interested in Neil Gaiman's take on writing and literature, take a look at the introduction he wrote for the short story anthology Stories, which Gaiman edited along with Al Sarrantonio. As David Barnett points out in his entry in the Guardian's book blog (click here for the link), the collection includes stories from many authors who work outside Gaiman's usual SF parameters -- including Walter Mosley, Jodi Picoult, and Roddy Doyle. Lots of big names in this volume, for a nice cross-genre smattering of summer reading. You can find it shelved in our Short Story Collection (SSC).
