|Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer
I love anthologies. They give a coverage of the genre or area of literature that I am focusing on. After reading the anthology, I expand on the body of works of the authors that I liked most. This is a very efficient way of proceeding on focused readings. Give it a try.
This is a great anthology especially if you like short short stories. There are 125 stories in this collection with 25 or fewer words from best-selling and award-winning authors as Joyce Carol Oates, Ha Jin, Peter Straub, and James Frey, as well as emerging writers.
Editor Robert Swartwood says: ”Inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s infamous six-word story — “For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn” — Hint Fiction is a story of 25 words or fewer that suggests a larger, more complex story. The stories in Hint Fiction might appear tiny and innocent, but they indeed pack a punch to the reader, proving that less is definitely more. ”
