The grading is finished -- finally! -- and now semester really is over.

Two and a half weeks left where I don't actually have to be anywhere. I'm going to waste this time, I just know it. But with good intentions I've checked out four anthologies of short stories from the library today as well as printed out several story manuscripts to edit over break.

The Best American Nonrequired Reading, 2008
Best of Tin House
Futures from Nature
Best New American Voices, 2009

I'm hoping to better assess the market where it stands now.

Highly Recommended
