Short Stories

Short fiction is second-cousin to the poem, relying on many of the same techniques (including brevity). Like poetry, fiction can be very beautiful, with words that flow like sunshine from a cloudy sky and imagery capable of haunting our dreams at night. And short fiction, like poetry, attempts to reveal the hidden Truths of our humanity.
