novellachallenge_thumbnail.jpgNow that I have broken my reading challenge duck, I’ve decided to plunge into another one, hosted by Trish here. I am a great admirer of both short stories and short novels, and think I will be able to manage the required six novellas between April and September 2008 without too much trouble.

So far I’ve identified the following:

1. Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman [27 May]

2. The Invention of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares

3. The Dreaming Place by Charles de Lint [9 May]

4. The Touchstone by Edith Wharton [29 September]

5. Cheerful Weather for the Wedding by Julia Strachey [18 May]

6. A Celibate Season by Carol Shields and Blanche Howard replaced by Provincial Daughter by RM Dashwood [5 August]

7. Rape: A Love Story by Joyce Carol Oates [15 September]

But I reserve the right to change my mind!
