Short Stories

A short story is a short work of prose fiction. It may be in any genre of fiction, and the exact definition of "short" will often depend on the genre.

Short stories are often collected together with other short stories, poetry, art, and/or essays in order to form a larger book, although it is becoming more common for short stories to be released as stand-alone ebooks.

Her Favorite Magic Realism: The short fiction writer recommends "books of the uncanny and the strange," not unlike her new story collection, Get in Trouble.

John Cheever
For me a page of good prose is where one hears the rain. A page of good prose is when one hears the noise of battle.... A page of good prose seems to me the most serious dialogue that well-informed and intelligent men and women carry on today in their endeavor to make sure that the fires of this planet burn peaceably.

Clark Zlotchew
Fiction has been maligned for centuries as being "false," "untrue," yet good fiction provides more truth about the world, about life, and even about the reader, than can be found in non-fiction.
