I've oft wondered, mes auteurs, whether the majority of you write short stories in addition to novels, and if so, how similar you find the two media. Do certain ideas lend themselves much better to short stories than novels, and vice versa? Do you believe the two arts are so different that being good at one doesn't necessarily mean you'll be any good at the other? If you read and write short stories, which magazines/journals do you like to read/subscribe to? &c &c.
