Although I've read many of the classic PAW novels, I'd really like to see more of the short story genre. I realize they would be too short to sell on Amazon, but so what. If a particular author gets into writing them, he could sell a compilation - that was what they did in the 1800s.

They don't have to fit the classical literature rules for short stories. I've read a few that were really short (a few paragraphs only) and still worthwhile. Jerry's vignettes are more on the long side for short stories, but I've read all those and everything else here that I could find.

I guess since I like them so much I should try writing them. But all the ones I've tried come out too long but too short for a novel. Not many people are good at it I suppose. Seems to me, though, the short story format would be ideal for teaching survival skills and instilling morals, each one kind of like a single episode of Dual Survival (except fictional instead of staged).

Take a look at PAW Fiction, a website with a lot of good writers/stories, along with some short stories.

I'm already familiar with it. I read unfinished stories, but can't get past the google-foo to register, so can't post or read completed stories.
