I just finished reading The Art of Dramatic Writing by Lajos Egri and I am impressed. Do you have any suggestions of books of that quality on short stories? I have searched the bookshops around me. Than the library. All I can find is some ladies teaching you how to reheat the leftovers from the last published story in order to get published in some short lived magazine. I don't look down to that. Only it is not my intention to search that business. And I find that disturbing because I can find no other way to search. I want to read about short stories, but not that kind of short story.
