Quotes & Awards

  • “The perfect gift for those who claim to be too busy to read. For the rest of us, these stories are like literary canapes... Irresistible. ”

    Sue Grafton

  • “A short story in 55 words—impossible! Yet these stories, the world's shortest, have setting, characters, conflict, and resolution. They address murder, love, suspense, horror, betrayal, and often end with a catchy turnaround. The answer lies in the author's ability to write with amazing compression and economy, making each word count…the haiku of short fiction.”

    Library Journal

  • “Shorter and sassier are these tiny tales, all amazing for their telling brevity. There are dozen of stories, not one of which is longer than 55 words. Some are humorous, some are gory, some are romantic, and almost all have a twist.”

    New York Post

  • “The readers bring much life to these concise yarns. Muller is fabulous as ever. His rich, resonant voice infuses the stories with emotion. All three readers add accents that inject these imaginative bits of wordplay with energy and verve.”  

    Los Angeles Times
