I'm looking to overhaul some of my 7th grade Reading curriculum. I've sort of grown weary of some of the same, musty old texts that 21st century students really are growing further in time and personal connection with. Does anyone have any short story recommendations in the 3,000 word range? I'm on the lookout for stuff in the realm of sci-fi, fantasy, or even horror (but the genre isn't a deal breaker) published some time since, oh say...2008, when many of my incoming students were born. I've been making frequent trips to the local library for short story books, but a lot aren't really passing muster for one reason or another. I'm honestly starting to get an eye ache from all this reading, so any help would be appreciated.
