This week:

The Way We Live Now by Susan Sontag
Horsing Around by Vincent Diamond
The Flood by Jed Hartman
Red Riding Hood's Child by N.K. Jemisin

Next week (July 21, 2007 - Open Session at A Different Bookstore, Serendra)

The Labrador Fiasco by Margaret Atwood
Eight Episodes by Robert Reed
Don Ysidro by Bruce Holland Rogers

Last week:

At Merienda by Maryanne Moll
The Remember by Aimee Bender
A Siege of Cranes by Benjamin Rosenbaum

The Moll delivered, the Rosenbaum needed to be explained (and thus, in a way, failed to work, though it was still interesting) and the Bender was great read (enough to cause the remaining copies of Bender's collections to vanish from the bookstore).

To give more time for more voices to be heard, we've decided to discuss only three stories each time we have an open session (we normally do four).


**The LitCritters is a reading and writing group based in Manila, as well as in Dumaguete. Every week, we read and discuss several pieces of short fiction from various genres from different writers with the goal of expanding our reading horizons, improving our ability to critique, and learning how to write from the good texts. In addition to speculative fiction, we read Philippine literature in English, as well as world literature.

For those who'd like to join us: first, sign up for the LitCritter mailing list so you can access the archives of readings (the box is on the right side of my blog). Next, read all the stories for the week. Then, join one of our open sessions at A Different Bookstore at Serendra, Bonifacio High Street every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.

We'd love to have you there.
