Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer

Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer - Robert Swartwood, Kathleen Ryan, Donora Hillard, Mercedes M. Yardley, Barry Napier, Jeremy D. Brooks, Tara Deal, Jane Hammons, Randall Brown, Val Gryphin, Madeline Mora-Summonte, Sophie Playle I read this in about an hour. It's fantastic--the entire time I was cringing or making sad faces or laughing or penning emoticons in the margins. I'm awed by how much the authors manage to convey in so few words. Some of the pieces in the "Love and Hate" section do fall flat, probably because it's hard to write about love without relying on unsurprising tropes. But that's my only complaint, really. Most of the stories manage to be touching, thoughtful, or shocking--impactive in some way, likable or otherwise.

Read it.
