VIDEO: Short Fiction Keeps Getting Better and Better

Before Wednesday’s Story Prize ceremony, I took a quick moment with prize director Larry Dark to discuss the current state of short fiction:

“There are people who feel like because it doesn’t have a huge audience, it’s not healthy, but artistically, it is super-healthy. The quality of the stories we’ve been reading, the books we’ve been reading—I can’t imagine there was a better time for short fiction artistically… I keep thinking there’s going to be a lull one year, and it can’t possibly be as good as the year before, and they keep equalling or surpassing them.”
