Some painters are good are rendering life-like portraits that show every detail. You can marvel at the picture they paint for you and get lost in the detail. However, the minimalist movement shows that sometimes, less is more. In "Briefs for the Reading Room", Dan Marvin is a minimalist. You fill in the blanks. The stories immediately rope you in and the characters resonate even though you catch them right in the middle of the action. If you don't like one story, there are 101 more just waiting to be explored. And if those aren't enough, the book is full of 'fabricated factoids' and 'questionable quotations' that give you a chuckle. Briefs isn't all comedy, but it's a great diversion at a time when the world needs to not take itself so seriously. --New Media Reviews
From the Author
Now you can purchase this first collection of my flash fiction for your very own. The hard copy version makes a handy companion when nature calls. The kindle version can entertain you for hours without ever having to remember where you left off.
To aspiring writers, and especially writers of flash fiction, I encourage you to just sit down and start writing. There is nothing more fun (OK, maybe SOMETHING more fun but stick with me here) than putting the finishing touches on a story that comes together perfectly.
So once again thank you, and I hope you will plunk down a few of your hard earned dollars for a copy of Briefs. If you like what you see, be sure to keep an eye out for Dan Marvin's New Briefs debuting soon, and also pick up a copy of my novel Thomas Granger which is like a flash fiction story stretched out to novel proportions.
