Book Brouhaha (arts and entertainment)
REVIEWED BY: Marguerite Zelle
MY RECOMMENDATION: Yes
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: Book Brouhaha, by Alain Gomez
WEB ADDRESS: http://bookbrouhaha.blogspot.com/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: The articles in this blog cover various topics that are intended to highlight the short story genre. Guest short story authors are frequently featured.
This blog also provides reviews for works that are 10,000 words or less only. This is a somewhat unique feature as most blog reviewers focus primarily on novels.
MY REVIEW: Book Brouhaha seems to be a misnomer, since this blog focuses on the short story rather than the book. But that's a mere quibble. This is an excellent blog for those folks who are interested in short stories - and I have to admit in today's busy world it's a lot easier to find the time to read short stories rather than novels.
The short story is a distinct form from the novel - believe it or not its much harder to right a short story, as one has fewer words in which to accomplish the story...no padding allowed, which you can get by with in a novel.
Author interviews, short stories, short story reviews.
