Rachel Swirsky’s Short Story Recommendations, 2012 I read approximately 540 pieces of short fiction this year. I didn’t separate those into short story, novelette, and novella until after I had selected which pieces I wanted to recommend.

I didn’t spend as much time looking for reccs this year, though, because I decided to spend my time reading whole magazines.
