The Short Story Today...again

More of this dramatic crisis in contemporary literature:

Larry Dark, director of the Story prize and a former editor of the O. Henry Prize series, responds to the whole short story stink over at Critical Mass.

Then poster Samuel Edmonson, professional writer?, presents his own theories in the comments section: "And what I have to say about Larry Dark's essay is that the dishonest attitude it exhibits is the public enemy number one of literature today."

Funny stuff.
