SMFS Short Story Saturdays: Nik Morton proclaimed May International Short Story Month back in 2013. As the short story, in the mystery genre, is the reason why the Short Mystery Fiction Society exists, we join in the celebration each year. We do so by highlighting the stories of one or more members each day. This year our celebration went from May 1st to June 1 and featured 39 stories by 31 authors.

The event this year was incredibly successful and garnered a lot of interest by membership and nonmembers. So much so that the SMFS membership has decided to keep the momentum going by way of a new feature. SMFS Short Story Saturdays will highlight each Saturday at least one short story from a SMFS list member that can be read online and for free. These short stories will be stories that are at least a year old and were not previously linked to during the May 2018 Short Story Month event.

Today, one of our newest members, Nik Morton, shares the short story “Grave Concerns” from the author’s archives. This short story kicks off our SMFS Short Story Saturdays feature that will continue for many more weeks to come.

If you would like to be included and are a member of the SMFS list at yahoo groups, email the link to your story to KevinRTipple at Verizon dot net. If you are not a member, this would be a good time to check us out at Yahoo Groups.
