Shockingly Short StorieseBook - 2013
"Released as a paperback in 2004 this ground-breaking collection is considered by many to be a pioneering work in the flash fiction movement. It broke publishing barriers to micro-fiction, inspired many authors, has been adapted to film and audio, and was also a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award. The expanded hardcover edition contains "Aftershocks," a battery of newly added stories, as well as bonus writing prompts in an included reader's/teacher's guide, and a brand new Afterword. 100 Jolts actually features one hundred short shots of fiction guaranteed to stun. Arnzen has honed his craft to deliver the highest voltage using the fewest words. According to the author "Horror is the genre of the jolt, the shock, the spark. The horror story's conflict is always a matter of life and death, but death...almost always comes too soon-that's why we fear it." And now readers have a new reason to be afraid. One hundred new reasons! From the grotesque to the hilarious these bits of micro-fiction will keep you entertained long after you put the book down."-- Provided by publisher.
