Short stories reading guide
Short but not necessarily sweet - short fiction can pack a punch.
Short stories can usually be read in a single sitting so are great for people who don't have much time to read. With fewer pages to tell a story in, you'll find the action and character development happens quickly. Short stories can often leave a strong impression with a lot of conflict, emotional involvement or character development squeezed into this shorter format.
Short story collections sometimes pull together the work of a single author, or may be centred around a common theme.
