These Are the Fables

A Novella by

"[Amelia Gray's] stories aren't the type you read and then forget when and where you read them," writes guest editor Steph Opitz (of the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses) in her introduction to this issue of Recommended Reading. "In the glow of the glazed and sprinkled flames, is a couple too-old-to-be-forgiven-for-this-type - of-behavior plotting their next moves through's a story about closed doors, physical contact, willful ignorance, the search for meaning, obsessive love, the inertia of the day to day, and, ultimately, what to share."

About Recommended Reading:
Great authors inspire us. But what about the stories that inspire them? Recommended Reading, the latest project from Electric Literature, publishes one story every week, each chosen by a great author or editor. In this age of distraction, we uncover writing that's worth slowing down and spending some time with. And in doing so, we help give great writers, literary magazines, and independent presses the recognition (and readership) they deserve.

About the Author:
Amelia Gray is the author of three works of fiction: AM/PM (featherproof books), Museum of the Weird (FC2) and Threats (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux), for which she was named a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award.

About the Guest Editor:
For 46 years, the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses has provided technical assistance to and advocated on behalf of independent literary publishers. CLMP guides literature through the business of publishing and engages diverse communities of readers through a variety of public programs. For information about membership, please visit
