I am a huge fan of short fiction. I devour stories by Alice Adams, tasty morsels by Scott Fitzgerald and Hemingway, decadent treats by Isabel Allende, dark chunks by Poe, and those wonderful America’s Best anthologies.
I picked up New Sudden Fiction the other day, and am enthralled with Stacey Richter’s “The Minimalist” and Leslie Pietrzyk’s “Pompeii.”
I wish I could write like them — but my brain just doesn’t marry images and words the way they do.
These stories are delicious torture.

1) Where have you been? I gave up on you! And now you’ve snuck back on and I missed it.
2) A new Sudden Fiction? I have several. Love them.
3) What’s your GoodReads ID? I’ve been having a blast there.
