🔗 Author’s note - “I don’t think I’ve ever writ­ten about my the­ory of short stories, even though I talk about it a lot. It’s very simple: I think all good short sto­ries are, in one way or another, about death. That’s not true of novels; good nov­els can be about lots of things. But a good short story is always basi­cally a memento mori.”,, @cote
