Dear students who are registered for English 71D, "The Short Story in the U.S.": the Moodle site for our course is now available. It includes a file describing the course readings and the weekly assignments, plus various readings and other materials organized by week. Please check this out when you can before our first day of class so you can see if you have questions. The textbook ordered for the course is _Major American Short Stories_, ed. A. Walton Litz, but we'll also read widely outside of the anthology using pdf files that I've made. I look forward to seeing you all in September!
