The Short Stories of John McGahern

Journal of the Short Story in English

Deadline for submission : 31 December 2007

The Journal of the Short Story in English intends to publish a special =
issue of the Journal on the short stories of John McGahern and therefore =
invites new and original contributions on all aspects of his short =
fiction as it is available in The Collected Short Stories. Preference =
will be given to individual close textual analysis of any of the 34 =
stories in the collection but other approaches are also welcome: =
thematic or textual comparisons between stories, their relation with the =
author's novels, stylistic or generic considerations etc. All =
theoretical and methodological options will be considered but, for the =
sake of balance, the volume cannot include too many papers on the same =
short story, so should the situation arise you may be asked to choose a =
different text, that is why we recommend your proposals should be sent =
as early as possible to avoid any difficulty. The editors would prefer =
papers to be written in English but will take into consideration any =
relevant proposal in the French language.

Submissions should not exceed 7000 words and should conform to the =
standard MLA Style Manual. They are to be sent electronically to the =
guest editor, Prof. Claude Maisonnat, at the following address:=20
