Short Fiction, Big Thrills

Novels are wonderful.  They absorb us completely and take us to places we have never been, and sometimes never want to leave.  When we watch full feature movies we are allowed to watch someone else's life for two hours and be free from our own worries and cares.

Sometimes we don't have time for this love affair, but we still want it. 

The short story is the quickie of the literary world.  It gives us that same backseat thrill without the time investment or need for full-out love commitment.  Short and sweet, and we are left smiling.

Sometimes short is more.

Psychologically dark and thrilling short story, Absorbed. --------------------> 


  1. Agreed. I love what would appear to be a resurrection of the short story art form, I'm guessing largely due in part to the e-revolution.

  4. There is nothing quite so delicious as curling up with a really good novel that you hope never ends. But, with life being so busy at times, it is also good to have a brief read. I appreciate all the short story writers out there.
