Best Book Lists for Nov. 20-26, 2020

An open call for short stories ✍️

Hi Reader,

The onslaught of best-of-the-year book lists that starts in November makes me think no books get published in December. But a look at Publishers Weekly’s calendar shows that’s not true. Plenty of books are coming out next month, which begs the question: If a book publishes in December, is anyone around to read it?

Speaking of publishing, Something or Other Publishing has an open call for short stories. They’re collecting pieces for a few anthologies. You can visit this link to learn more. (If you submit, would you kindly mention that Bidwell Hollow referred you? Much obliged.)

Now scroll below to gorge on this week’s bounty of book lists. And let’s keep wearing those masks, friends.

Thanks for reading,
