Toasted Fiction: A Collection Of Very Short Stories (That Nobody Asked For) is a collection of 50 word stories by non-award-winning Scottish writer Christopher Patrick.
The stories are bitesize little vignettes from every genre containing tales of unemployed wizards, modern romance, and fire-starting ghosts. God's difficult second album (and Jesus dating), Hitler and Mussolini at breakfast, an alien stuck in a trophy cabinet, broken hearts, falling in love and much much more - all in 50 words. This is fiction that is toasted. In that it is short. Not edible. Please do not eat.
Perfect for reading on the train, on the bus, in a queue or, entirely at your discretion, on the toilet.
Praise for the book:
My god, these are amazing. The amount of creativity poured into each of these 50 word stories boggles the mind. It's entirely possible that this is my favorite book this year. Time to change the title - I'm absolutely asking for these very short stories. ***** -- D.Barrett (Author of It's All Fun & Games)
A superb collection of really touching, and insightful, short stories. Easy to lose yourself in for hours or pick up here and there. One liners a plenty too. The condensed nature of the 50 word story leads to some really clever literary outcomes. ***** -- Reader Review (Amazon Customer)
Nano stories. The man writes nano stories. They’re so much fun, so cleverly crafted with a beginning, middle, and end and clear characterizations. How does he do it? ***** -- S.T. Ranscht (Co-Author of Enhanced)
