Short Story Month - Your Favorite 9L Stories

We wanted to share some of the 9L stories our readers have said are their favorite.

From Twitter:

@: Jed Berry's great "Ghost 7, Prince 9" in Ninth Letter 14 (vol. 7, no. 2)

@ D Chaon (vol. 4, no. 2) & A Monson (vol. 6, no. 2) both had really memorable stories. I also dug the stuff of Matt Bell's that came out recently (vol. 7, no. 2).

From the blog:

Eric: "Stomp Tokyo" by Viet Dinh (vol. 6, no. 2). Nothing goes better with heartbreak than an island full of irradiated monsters.

Monique: "Ghost 7, Prince 9" by Jedediah Berry (vol. 7, no. 2). It's a story that demands its own action figures. You could make your own Ghost 7, Prince 9 play set at home with Playmobil figurines, an old placemat, a shoebox, Knox gelatin and blue food coloring, a cucumber, and some of those die-cut vinyl numbers that they sell at the hobby shop. Maybe some Peeps (for the feast scenes), pointy green Lego trees, and wagon-wheel pasta and toothpicks to make an invading army. And lots of tiny, delicious edicts.

We love hearing from our readers, so leave a comment here on the blog, tweet us, or post on our Facebook wall to keep letting us know which 9L stories are your favorite. And remember, telling us about your favorite 9L story automatically enters you in our Short Story Month Contest for 9L prize packs!
