In this month’s issue of The Believer, David Foster Wallace tells Dave Eggers that he has finished work on another book:

It’s a book of stories. The shortest is 1.5 pages and the longest is about 100. It was due last January 1 and I was six months late with it. Barring some sort of editorial disaster, it ought to come out next spring.

I’m reading Everything and More right now, and though I don’t have the energy to review it yet, I must admit that I’m a little disappointed that the next book won’t be a novel either. His nonfiction and novels are always great, but for some reason his short stories usually just don’t do it for me.
