It’s a (very) small but perfectly-formed list this time. I’m struggling to focus on reading lately, and I’ve started many more books than I’ve finished. Thankfully I found these few beauties, all of which have a short page length but a huge breadth of imagination and ambition. If you’re also struggling to get into big chunky books, try one of these small wonders:

Orfeia, Joanne M. Harris –I can’t get enough of these folklore-inspired novellas (I also loved A Pocketful of Crows and The Blue Salt Road), and this is a perfect addition to the series.

Between Tongues, Paul McQuade – Elegant, intelligent short stories combining a thoughtful examination of language and characters who feel entirely real.

The Employees, Olga Ravn – A strange, sparse and utterly compelling series of monologues. I’ve been looking for a decent space horror story for a long time, and this doesn’t disappoint.
