Description

Postcards From Impossible Worlds collects 88 strange, surprising and harrowing micro-stories from The Shortest Story, a photo-fiction project from award-winning author Peter Chiykowski. Each page reads like a postcard sent from a life you never lived or a world that never existed. On one page, the human race wakes up to discover the oceans have vanished. On the next, the Statue of Liberty comes to life and rampages down the coast to Washington. Anything is possible in The Shortest Story.

The volume also contains 13 stories narrated by Cecil Baldwin (voice of Welcome to Night Vale) and guest stories from Robert Shearman, Helen Marshall, Shawn Coss, Sandra Kasturi, James Mark Miller, Sonya Ballantyne, and Jordan Shiveley.



About the Author

Peter Chiykowski is the award-winning writer and cartoonist behind the postcard fiction website The Shortest Story and three very silly webcomics: Rock, Paper, Cynic, Is It Canon?, and What's George Doing Today?. His poems, stories, and comedy writing have shown up in places like Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek, MTV.com, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed and Asimov's Science Fiction. He is perpetually overrun by basset hounds.
