Great Short Stories from 2012

Most recent update: 28 February 2013 at ~8:00 a.m.

I read a lot of great short stories in 2012, but was not nearly as good at keeping track of the best as some other people were. Thankfully, a few of those other people have posted “best of” lists — allowing me to rediscover some of my favorites, and discover many new ones as well.

Here are links to the lists of “best crime fiction short stories in 2012” that I’ve found; as I come across more, I’ll add them here. (If you know of any I missed, please leave a comment below or email me: erikarneson4 {at} gmail {dot} com.)

I’m a bit of a stats geek, so I couldn’t help but do a calculation… The lists above include a total of 106 stories. Of those…

Forty-one other outlets had one story each, and one story was unpublished.
