It is the short story form that ignited speculative fiction back in the 40's and 50's and it still is a major force today. Big writers writing short fiction, purely for the love of that particular form (short stories).
But where is the short story in the CBA market. There is no such thing. Where are the short story collections by famous Christian authors?
The Nebula and Hugo awards recognize short stories, novellas, and novelettes!
It's a pity, because short stories are so much fun, and take so much skill to write. I've been touched more often by short stories than novels (but perhaps that's because its easier to read more of them)
The short story is a neglected jewel among Christian publishers. I am thankful that Double-edged publishing is keep it alive.
