Fast Fiction
If you're familiar with the book I edited, Dan Buck's "This Day's Wait," you'll know I have a penchant for short, short stories. Pure Content just reminded me to check out Michael Swanwick's Periodic Table of Science Fiction, in which Swanwick's writing a short, short story about every single element known to man. And I recently learned about JP Press' new short, short story periodical Quick Fiction, which is currently seeking submissions between 25 and 500 words in length. Throw in the National Novel Writing Month project, in which participants work to write a 200-page novel in 30 days, and Warren Ellis' Superfast comics creation project, and you've got the makings of a trend!
