2014 Short Stories Read

Here is my list of 2014 short stories read in the order that I read them. Titles that are denoted with a Star are reviews that I deem to be of award-nominee quality. These are titles that transcend the current field with either a higher writing quality or innovative ideas as compared to their peers.
