You Have Time for This
Contemporary American Short-Short Stories
This collection takes the modern reader on fifty-three literary rides, each one only five hundred words or less. Mark Budman and Tom Hazuka, two of the top names in the genre, have compiled an anthology of mini-worlds as diverse as the authors who created them.
Contributing writers include Steve Almond, author of My Life in Heavy Metal and Candy-freak; Aimee Bender, author of The Girl in the Flammable Skirt; Robert Boswell, author of five novels including Century's Son; Alex Irvine, author of A Scattering of Jades; L. E. Leone, who writes a weekly humorous column about food and life for the San Francisco Bay Guardian; Justine Musk, author of dark-fantasy novels including Blood Angel; Susan O'Neill, writer of nonfiction and fiction with a book of short stories Don't Mean Nothing: Short Stories of Vietnam; and Katharine Weber author of several novels, her most recent is Triangle.
From Buddha to beer, sex to headless angels, there's a story here for everyone. In You Have Time for This you will find:
Flash fiction from forty-four authors
Works from across the globe
Highly regarded authors from all types of genres
Fresh work from emerging writers
Fifty-three stand-alone pieces that tie the world together
Enjoy. You have time for this.
