An excerpt of a post by Fierce
"Short stories are an under-appreciated
art in post-postmodern literature. It isn't that we don't know how to write
them well; rather, we don't know how to honor their brevity.Ironic in a
drive-through microwave culture, that, as I often hear readers say they don't
enjoy short stories because they aren't long enough. It isn't that they aren't
compelling, aren't as well-developed as their longhaul cohorts, or don't
accomplish as much in significantly less pages. Short fiction often loses out
because we want more.Enjoying something so much as to want
an extra scoop is a great problem to have."
