wish list: short speculative fiction

Despite the existence of the internet, there are still so many stories I'm unhappy about not being able to read. Here's a short list of shorts I hope to read sometime.

"Dead Boy Found", Christopher Barzak (Trampoline)
"Wild Thing", Charles Coleman Finlay (F&SF)
"The Beautiful Gelreesh", Jeffrey Ford (Album Zutique #1)
"The Trentino Kid", Jeffrey Ford (The Dark)
"Closing Time", Neil Gaiman (McSweeney's Mammoth Treasury of Thrilling Tales)
"The Forest of Forgetting", Theodora Goss (Realms of Fantasy)
"Lily, with Clouds", Theodora Goss (Alchemy #1)
"A Fault Against the Dead", Nina Kiriki Hoffman (Realms of Fantasy)
"The Headline Trick", Douglas Lain (Rabid Transit: A Mischief of Rats)
"Woeful Tales from Mahigul", Ursula K. Le Guin (Changing Planes)
"Broken Branches", Heather Shaw & Tim Pratt (Intracities)
"The Drowned Mermaid", Christopher Barzak (Realms of Fantasy)
"That Good Night", Tim Powers (The Devils in the Details)
"Confusions of Uñi", Ursula K. Le Guin (Changing Planes)
"The Pink Ribbon", A. S. Byatt (Little Black Book of Stories)
"Glass: A Love Story", Jay Lake (Greetings from Lake Wu)
"The Hortlak", Kelly Link (The Dark)

I wish these publications were immediately available over here in the boondocks - or that online versions would be made available sometime after the primary publication for the benefit of poor shmoes like me.

All of these writers have made some sort of impact on me with their previous work, and I long to see what new things they've created.
