“These beautifully economical short stories (yes, truly stories) are photographs built with words. They capture a moment and a lifetime, a fraction and a whole. They are epics the size of sound bites, and they prove once and for all that size doesn’t matter. Just the stories that fit inside.” - Amber Sparks, author of The Unfinished World
"Let’s call them Centuries because they screw up time and space, these articulate deconstructions of Quantum Mechanics, hopped up and happening Nano-narratives lasting lifetimes. I like how they are justified, how they square-off and square-up on the infinite and bounded singularity of the page, how they present themselves as instant Polaroid-ic printed fictions, developing, pixel by pixilation, in front of our revving and REMing eyes and I’s. Moving and moving, these microscopic millennia in nutshells, expanding from the pancaked periods that map the infinite concentrated trail of ellipses, begin to explain, approaching the paradox of the accelerating dark mattered universe… (That, by the way, is a 100-word blurb)" - Michael Martone, author of Michael Martone and Winesburg, Indiana
"From butterknives to little dippers, the concerns of these stories range from the miniature to the galactic. A collection of taut tales, like a set of fingers gathered into a fist." - Hilary Leichter
"Brave, stunning stories that will turn your world around and leave you short of nothing! Sharp material. Beautiful writing." - Kim Chinquee, author of Oh Baby, Pretty, Pistol, Veer, and Shot Girls.
