"A short story in 55 words ... impossible! Yet these stories, the world's shortest, have setting, characters, conflict, and resolution. They address murder, love, suspense, horror, betrayal, and often end with a catchy [twist]. The answer lies in the author's ability to write with ... compression and economy, making each word count. These ... stories [none longer than 55 words], the haiku of short fiction, can be one long sentence or can begin every word with the same letter"--Library Journal.
