OCR is Not the Only Font

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
Silly, surreal and sometimes serious, these thirty-one very short stories cover a vast range of subjects and themes. Written entirely during July 2012, these flash fiction pieces are accompanied by a deeply unscientific analysis of the challenge that spawned them: to write thirty-one stories in thirty-one days.

About the Series: Flash Fiction Month
Have you ever wondered why superheroes wear their underpants over their trousers? Where the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse go shopping? What crop circles really mean? If so (and even if not) these books may be for you! Written as part of Flash Fiction Month, these books are each made up of 31 stories written one-a-day in July. Every book includes a tongue-in-cheek analysis of the event so that you can follow not only how the stories have varied over the course of the month, but how one author's work has developed over multiple years.

The stories in this collection are fun to read, the writer's style is engaging, and I've found myself re-reading several times. The variety of genres is very satisfying. I would recommend this to anyone.

Pen Gryphon reviewed on Sep. 8, 2012

This book came to me through a friend recommendation and I was intrigued by the concept of Flash Fiction (stories between 50-1000 words in length), let alone an anthology of sorts written in a month! I couldn't have been more entertained or more pleased by the short stories. They spanned various genres from urban fantasy and sci-fi to detective with lots of humor. Even more surprising were the twists thrown into each flash fiction story--I'm envious of this guy's talent!

Definitely a must-read for anyone looking for some well-written, light amusement, and while it's a quick read, it's definitely worth reading again and again!
