I. Today I want to let people know of another online only publication, Muse India . I will also post on a powerful short story by Mangala Varma from that publication.
Muse India has a very clear statement of purpose.
I am in the very opening stages in my reading of South Asian Short Stories. I was very glad to see that in his landmark book on short stories which I am currently reading (The Lonely Voice: A Study of the Short Story, 1963) Frank O'Connor, says that the Indian Short Story is beginning to surpass the Irish Short Story. Happily for me I do not have to choose between these two reading areas. There is a significant mutual influence, it seems to me.
