What miracles can one hundred debut to bestselling authors do with 100 words?
More than three hundred 100-word drabbles from around the world.
Hello, blog readers. I know, things have been scarce over here on the review front, but this one may go some way to explaining that. I’ve been doing a lot more writing than reading lately, and one of my little stories has made its way into an actual book.
The Angels microfiction anthology is a collection of stories of exactly one hundred words each. There are several other anthologies in publication this year on different dark fantasy themes, but this one is about angels—one of my favourite topics. No, I’m not particularly religious (or at all, even), it’s just that these guardians/warriors/fluffy winged assbutts are one of my favourite supernatural creatures to read or watch shows about, so having a story published in this collection is a dream come true, really.
The stories range from funny to dramatic, prosaic to conversational. On some pages there are illustrations, but all of them are cleanly laid out and easy to read. It’s amazing how much each author can fit into just one hundred words.
As my hundred-word debut, I’m honoured to be a part of it, and I’d love you to check it out as well. Oh, and if you’re wondering which one is mine, I’ve submitted it under my real name: Anika Claire. Why do I feel like I just came out?
