Disturbing, delightful and very, very short: Fiction in 25 words or fewer


I love these snippets from Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer, that were published in the New Yorker. An anthology, edited by Robert Swartwood, it includes an eerie piece by my friend and fellow Minneapolitan Jeremy Zoss, called "Houston, We Have a Problem":

I'm sorry, but there's not enough air in here for everyone. I'll tell them you were a hero.

Perfect reading for those winter evenings where you just want to take in a sentence, and then stare out the window for 20 minutes digesting it.
