“Find the key emotion; this may be all you need know to find your short story.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald “A short story is the ultimate close-up magic trick – a couple of thousand words to take you around the universe or break your heart.” – Neil Gaiman Life is a Metaphor. A metaphor is a symbol. A symbol is a sign. Watch for the signs. Like all stories, they can be watered-down to act as metaphor or parables; but unlike parables, metaphors can be interpreted differently, depending on the subject. A waning metaphor therefore, only sustains resolve if a person decides to recognize it. The literary short plays an important role for the reader.What could be more rewarding than a quick read? Instant gratification through story-telling? This anthology features multiple genres and zero commitment.
