Continuity of Parks, by Julio Cortázar
Feathers, by Raymond Carver
The Ice Baby, by Carys Bray
It, by Adam Wilmington, winner of the 2013 Manchester Fiction Prize
A Good Man is Hard to Find, by Flannery O’Connor (from the collection of the same name)
The Company of Wolves, by Angela Carter (from The Bloody Chamber; just basically read the whole book! There used to a half-decent pdf online, but it seems to have vanished: this one is peculiar, but will do at a pinch. Do buy the book, though… or at the very least take it out of the library.)
My Polish Teacher’s Tie, by Helen Dunmore (probably the most uplifting story ever written; from Ice Cream)
These next two are available online if you want to subscribe to The New Yorker (or perhaps already do); at time of writing it’s a dollar a week to do so.
