Green Snake Publishing is tickled to announce the publication of Mario Milosevic’s extraordinary short-short story collection Miniatures. Mario is a master of flash fiction and the weird and wonderful. In Miniatures, the reader will find the weird and wonderful in flash fiction and other very short stories.
Mario wrote an entire novel (Terrastina & Mazolli) in 99-word chapters. For several years he had a blog (Conditional Reality) where he wrote posts that were 100-words long. Now we have collected some of Mario’s best for Miniatures. None of the stories are longer than 2,500 words, and the shortest is 50 words long. Readers will find stories about robots, people barbequeing time, Terrastina and Mazolli and the twins, ghosts, and much much more.
From the cover: Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway bet his fellow writers at the Algonquin Round Table that he could write a complete short story in six words. The other writers ponied up ten bucks each, and Papa claimed the pot with possibly the saddest six words ever written: “For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.”
In this collection, Mario Milosevic offers 41 of his own very short stories. By turns funny, fantastic, witty, fabulous, and poignant, none are as brief as six words, but they all pack a punch and are guaranteed to intrigue, amuse, and move.
