The popularity of short stories dates back to the days of glossy magazines; think Vogue, Saturday Evening Post, Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and certainly, The New Yorker.
Although in recent years the short story has taken second place to the novel, [narrative non-fiction and flash fiction somewhat filling the void], with the prevalence of the Kindle and other digital reading devices, short fiction has shown remarkable durability and appears to be poised for resurgence with power and respectability not seen in years. The great American short story is still being written and merely awaits its readers.
Nothing is as satisfying as a good short story which grabs the reader quickly and is always driven toward a sudden and unexpected revelation, a surprising twist to the plot. TWISTED SHORTS is a perfect venue for book groups where time constraints are an issue and where one or two stories can provide material for a full discussion.
