Sudden Fiction: What Is It?
Tindall, James
Initially an assignment for a library science class, this paper presents various definitions of the current creative writing phenomenon called "sudden fiction" (very short short stories with concise character sketches, and terse tales limited in length to several pages). The paper includes: (1) a list of well regarded sudden fiction anthologies; (2) a list of reviews of those anthologies; (3) a reference to additional collections of stories by such writers as Robert Coover, Ernest Hemingway, Franz Kafka, and Guy de Maupassant recommended by informed scholars in the field; and (4) a list of periodicals (including editors' names) that publish sudden fiction.
