“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.
"Grant Faulkner, Lynn Mundell and Beret Olsen, the editorial team behind the innovative flash fiction webzine 100WordStory.org... They’ve been publishing the best of micro-flash for nearly seven years. They’ve showed how bursts of illumination can be captured in 100 words, bringing shock and joy, wonder, and grief... Their first anthology showcases the inventive ways writers tell stories within such a tiny compartment. It includes more than 100 gems―work by Maude Casey, Thaisa Frank, Molly Giles, Manuel Gonzales, Pamela Painter, Meg Pokrass, Ethel Rohan, Paul Strohm, Aaron Teel (and my flash story 'Weed'). Reading them makes it clear, as the editors write, To write with such brevity seems like it should be easy, but it’s not. Every word, every sentence matters.'” – LitHub (Jane Ciabattari)
...dazzling and enticing, a kaleidoscopic intoxication. The anthology lifts you into a planetarium, drops you at a table in a Japanese restaurant, guides you into an octopus bar, lets you hide under a piano, leaves you shivering on Antarctica, and convicts you to a prison cell. The editors did a brilliant job in arranging the stories in such a way that you’re not thrown about too much from one extreme into another, but can enjoy a common atmosphere for a while, before the stories dive into a new direction... In this must-have collection of gems..." - JMWW (Claire Polders)
