We're happy to reveal the results of our Q2 Short Fiction survey, featuring stories from April 2015 to June 2015. This time around, we had 42 submissions, 28 of them with more than one recommendation, which is awesome! We're so grateful to all the short fiction fans who took part by sharing their favorite short fiction and invited their friends to take part as well. :D

Special thanks to Jonah for being our spreadsheet wizard and processing the stories for us. He's working hard to bring everyone short fiction rec lists and teach us how to use Excel. :D

Check out the stories below, sorted by the number of recommendations they received. We included word count this round for those who want to know the time investment they're getting into when choosing stories to read. For some stories the word counts are approximate because not all publishers provide them; corrections are most welcome! Stories that must be purchased to read are marked with an asterisk, but we've linked to their home magazine or anthology on Goodreads.

Happy reading, and keep an eye on [twitter.com profile] feministponies for the Q3 Short Fiction Survey announcement, coming in mid-October.

Indeed, we do have a comment policy.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
