Yes, I'm on Twitter at @budgie. (An FAQ about me on Twitter is here.)


I'm delighted to announce that both volumes of The Fast Fiction Challenge are available through lulu.com.

Click on either graphic to be taken to lulu.com Both books are also available via Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

E-Versions (for Kindle, Sony reader, iBooks, etc.) can be obtained either from lulu.com or from myself - email direct for details!

This was the challenge I issued on my blog some time ago:
Reply with a title (maximum of four words)
about which you’d like me to write a fast
fiction of exactly 200 words, together with a
single word you want me to include in the text
of the tale.
Five hundred stories later, there are three hundred and eighty of the best tales presented between covers: 180 in volume 1, 200 in volume 2 (which comes with an introduction by Wil Wheaton!)

Stories with titles like She Killed Me Twice, The Brain That Exploded, The Pachyderm Wore Pink and Single White Fee Male. And words like ranunculus, vaginate and carronade.

You asked for them. You got them.
