The editors, who produced the scholarly collections Upon Further Review: Sports and American Literature (Praeger, 2004) and Critical Insights: American Sports Fiction (Salem, 2013), have already accepted proposals for nearly all the chapters of The American Short Story volume (Grey House Publishing). As it stands now, the book will contain chapters on writers ranging from Henry James to Jhumpa Lahiri. Some chapters will focus on intriguing subgenres of the short story such as the short story cycle and micro fiction.

concerns of critics over the years.
