One Storyis a consistent source of great short fiction, one to which you should be definitely subscribing. If you don't know about this publication, they publish a single short story every month in a small volume (which is actually easy to lose, so be careful). They mix emerging and established writers and don't publish a writer more than once.
A story from earlier this year, "Catacombs" by Jason Zencka is a great example of the kind of fiction One Story publishes, and this from a never previously published writer. It is a hard story to review because what is so good about it is what unfolds naturally from the story. To tell you about those things now would ruin the experience.
I will say the story starts off with two brothers, one a teenager, the other younger, talking to a woman in a resort bar. The elder brother propositions the woman for sex, and from there the story takes a variety of turns. The biggest turn, though, is announced so matter of factly in a introductory prepositional phrase as to knock you out. It is a great example of stories not being about tragedies, but about the aftermath of tragedies.
Zencka creates a narrator whose voice is unique, directly addresses the reader, and often breaks every rule there is—all without sacrificing plot or the emotional heft of the story. As you turn the pages of "Catacombs," you also turn corners in the world the author creates, each one more surprising than the next.
