About this title:

Synopsis: As the title suggests, Shorts is a collection of short fiction by the author, H. S. Contino. The book contains a combination of short stories and poems that were written over a fifteen year period. The subject matter of the work is diverse. There are light hearted pieces including "Grandpa's Tall Tale," but there are also much darker pieces such as "Hindsight." Many of the stories are infused with the author's unique sense of humor. A firm believer that writing is a practice, Contino enjoys trying new things and tackling new challenges. She often begins her writing day with shorter "warm up" exercises before moving on to her longer works. Many of the entries in this collection are the result of writing prompts, free writing exercises, and experiments. The collection demonstrates the diversity of the author, a self-proclaimed "hodgepodge." It also demonstrates how her writing style has developed over the years.

Review: 1. Amazon Customer reviewed Shorts: A Collection of Short Fiction                                   A Short Read But A Good One November 25, 2013 This is a great book for those who enjoy short stories and poems.

One of my favorite stories is called Be Careful What You Wish For. It is about a Pumpkin named Peter. It is on the lighter side. The last story in the book is called Silver Linings and it is a little more on heavy side in which it deals with real live.
The author believes that writing is a practice, not a destination. And as she wrote each story it shaped her into the writer she is today. So sit your comfortable place, curl up with a blanket and this book and enjoy the time that you have taken to read this book.                       2. mathias reviewed Shorts: A Collection of Short Fiction                                   Best book ever December 12, 2013 This book is the best book I have ever read it is very interesting and is action packed. This is a good book.
