Deborah Willis Giveaway

By | on September 14, 2010 | 19 Comments

JC: Well, if you’ve been keeping up to date with your rss feeds and blog reading, you’ve seen a lot of Deborah Willis on 3G1B in the past week or so. JR reviewed  her fantastic book Vanishing and Other Stories, followed by reviews of several of the individual stories in the collection. Finally, yesterday we published her contribution to the 3G1B series When We Fell In Love.

If your interest has been adequately piqued… and how could it not…then fortune smiles upon you. Harper Perennial has graciously provided ten finished copies for our readers. To have a chance to win, comment below, and, to liven things up, give us the name of a favorite short story that you think deserves more attention. Bonus opportunities to win for links to those stories, and to those who either comment on or “like” this entry on the 3G1B Facebook page.

I’ll start with “Haircut” by Ring Lardner. Here it is.

    My favourite short story ever is Babette’s Feast by Karen Blixen. It contains all of my favourite story themes: love, passion, food, war, religion, change, redemption and winning the lottery.

    Admittedly I’m prejudiced, as he’s a friend – but I still love “Horrortown”, by John Jasper Owens. http://www.acappellazoo.com/fall08.2

    Kelly Link’s “Magic for Beginners” is among the best things I have ever read, period. I am a relentless evangelist for her.

    That is a killer question. I think I’ll go with Demonology by Rick Moody because it broke rules and, as a result of breaking those rules, stunned me.

    I know it’s a classic and most people have read it, but I’ve always loved “Why I Live at the P.O.” by Eudora Welty. It stuck with me from the first read, ages ago.

    I read “Survivor Type” when I was younger, and had to type the general plot into Google to find the title – hadn’t even recalled it was Stephen King!

    In an even more interesting moment, it appears that a MOVIE version has just begun shooting! http://www.survivortypefilm.com/

    ** I’d also go with “Lamb to the Slaughter” from “Skin and other Stories” by Roald Dahl: http://www.classicshorts.com/stories/lamb.html
