PURE FICTION

Awesome!

By Palladian, editor, author of Super

Aug 31, 2014: If you’re a flash-fiction fan and you haven’t yet checked out any of the Pure Fiction pieces on her site, you should drop what you’re doing and head over there immediately to get lost, for at least a few minutes apiece, in the lives of others.

Kathleen Maher does a fabulous job of giving you a taste of many different worlds, from many different points of view. You can read about young and old people, the innocent and criminals, and even find out what might be going on in the mind of some pets. The writing itself is exquisite; I don’t remember finding a typo in the whole bunch of stories.

All in all, these are like a box of tiny chocolates, each with a handpainted scene on them, and only one exquisite bite apiece. My only complaint, since I really prefer long stories, was my perpetual feeling of “but what happens next?” If that’s not an issue for you, I recommend you go to her site and check these out right away. You’ll be glad you did.
