Everyone has a different opinion about the worth of short stories and Stephen Graham Jones is no different. Here's an interview with Stephen over at Solarcide where he talks about shorts. He has some very interesting thoughts on the subject.
And it occurred to me that you might like to sample some of Mr. Jones' work and I remembered that Mixer Publishing did a special issue of his work in all the genres they publish. So go have a read.
