Sudden Fiction (continued): 60 New Short-short Stories
Robert Shapard, James Thomas
W.W. Norton, 1996 - Fiction - 311 pages
Responding to America's love affair with the short-short, editors Robert Shapard and James Thomas consulted nearly two-hundred magazines and chose sixty stories, written in English or translated, that they considered best. Ranging across countries and cultures, the selection includes a number of new stories from the Pacific Rim. Each story revels in its own element of surprise; each, whether traditional or experimental, proves that a tale told quickly offers pleasure long past its telling. Students and lovers of literature take note: this is serious writing that's fun to read.
