Hello hello hello, welcome to the inaugural edition of Short Story Book Club!
This week's tall tale (short tale?) is of Titania and Oberon, caught in a moment of crisis. The New Yorker originally published it, which is surprising, but to be fair they have slowly moved into more and more 'genre' fiction. (I think about 10 stories last year were pure science fiction/fantasy).
But without further ado, the story is here: http://www.newyorker.com/fiction/features/2009/04/20/090420fi_fiction_adrian
Come back here and tell me your favorite lines, least favorite lines, what worked and what didn't, and then I'll publish a roundup post before next week's Short Story Club. Any recommendations for future stories are also welcome!
