Forthcoming: “Here, Where We Live” (Rose Metal Press, Fall, 2014) my novella-in-flash (2014)

“My Very End of the Universe” is a celebration of an increasingly popular genre: the novella-in-flash, a novella built of stand-alone flash stories. the mini-novellas in this collection— “Here, Where We Live” by Meg Pokrass, “The Family Dogs” by Chris Bower, “Bell and Bargain” by Margaret Chapman, “Betty Superman” by Tiff Holland and “Shampoo Horns” by Aaron Teel— are compact and specific, yet whole and universal, using the flexibility of the form to offer a polyphony of setting and emotion. Accompanying each mini-novella-in-flash is a craft essay by the author exploring the form.header-logo
