I am, on and off, reading a fun little book called 30 Second Sci Fi: Three hundred and sixty-five stories of a science fictional nature, that consists as it says of stories you can read in under a minute. I don’t know if the author will appreciate this observation but they make excellent loo reading. Over all the quality of the stories is good, it can be a little hit and miss but at 30 seconds a story it doesn’t really matter if you hit the odd dud and it is only the odd one so far. Each story feels almost like an elevator pitch for a longer story in a lot of cases.
What can I say? I am throughly enjoying this quirky collection of sci fi flash fiction and it is perfect for all those times you have a few minutes to kill and don’t want to risk getting absorbed in something longer!
