Gems, shards, bon bons, quickies. . .

. . .nuggets, tickles, or even pinpricks. Each 100 Word Story is its own kind of special.

NOTHING SHORT OF presents the best of, the leader in short-short fiction and a popular go-to for great reading.

In these very short stories, every word, every detail, every moment matters. And the things left out, the spaces around the stories, are just as intense.

What can a hundred words do? They can send chills, they can bring you to tears, they can take your breath away. In NOTHING SHORT OF, a hundred words is all you need.
