We Fictionados have homework for the first time: list your favorite stories, genre and not. In compiling this list, I’ve realized how poorly read I am. So:

Short Story or Novella
“My Name is Aram” and “The Journey to Hanford” by William Saroyan
“The Stars My Destination” by Alfred Bester
“Magic for Beginners” by Kelly Link

Novel
Love and Garbage by Ivan Klima
Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis and Derick Robertson (yes, I count the entire series as one big-ass novel. Why the hell not?)
Spin by Robert Charles Wilson
Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut
Church and State by Dave Sim and Gerhard

Nonfiction
i: six nonlectures by ee cummings
On Writing by Stephen King
