Best of 2005 – Pt 2

There are several longer stories – short novels in the 35,000 to 60,000 word range – that are amongst the year’s best short fiction, but are simply too long to fit into any book. For that reason, I’ve omitted them from the main list for the year. Still, if you have a taste for long stories, then I’d also heartily recommend:

Fishin’ with Grandma Matchie, Steven Erikson
The Cosmology of the Wider World, Jeffrey Ford
Voluntary Committal, Joe Hill
The Life of Riley, Alexander C. Irvine
Burn, James Patrick Kelly
