I’m probably late to the party here, but I’ve discovered this fantastic site- The Short Story Project– that brings together talented writers, translators, critics, and others from around the world to give readers some of the best contemporary and classic short fiction out there. “And is there any speculative fiction on this site?” you might ask. YES. A lot of great SFT, in fact. Below, I’ve listed some SFT featured on the SSP site, and I look forward to finding more. Enjoy!
