There's something immensely satisfying about reading a great short story. Some writers claim writing short is much harder than writing long. I don't know that it's necessarily harder, it just requires a different mindset for both writer and reader. It's a snack, not a meal; it's an episode, not a feature film. A great short story is like that strange, fascinating person you once sat next to on the train — you'll never see them again, but you'll always remember that conversation.
World Weaver Press has published so much fantastic short fiction. Rhonda Parrish's Magical Menageries anthology series made the Tangent Online Recommended Reading List in 2014 and 2015; Bascomb James' Far Orbit series received a glowing review from Publisher's Weekly; Bitten by Books called Kate Wolford's Krampusnacht: Twelve Nights of Krampus a "must-read".
This week, we're celebrating all the short fiction we've published. All week, our anthologies and single-author collections are on sale through our website and Kobo, and select titles are on sale through Amazon and other retailers as well — watch our social media to find out which ones!
