Editorial Reviews

Review

"Short does an incredible amount of research and heavy lifting, presenting a cross-section of short-form prose, collecting the works of different countries and eras in the most comprehensive anthology I’ve yet encountered. ... Short masterfully displays the incredible diversity and creativity engendered by even the shortest works. ... From humor to heartbreak and back again, the stories and short works in Short offer a whirlwind tour exploring what the written word is capable of, the tip of an impossibly valuable iceberg."
San Francisco Book Review

"Short is an important and impressive document...Alan Ziegler, editor of Short, is the right man for the job."
HTMLGiant

"…the intriguing new collection….offers his readers an enticing foray into the pleasures of brief, compressed works."
American Book Review

About the Author

5.0 out of 5 stars 353 page treasure chest
By Lawrence Pluto on May 19, 2022
Gem after glittering gem! I have purchased this book at least three times. It is my favorite flash anthology because it features some of the best bits of quick fiction from the last 500+ years. Every time i open it--another literary treasure. I am so thankful I found this book!
