NORTH OF REALITY

Fun Nonsense and Short-short-fiction

By TCC Edwards, author of Far Flung

Mar 22, 2016: North of Reality is a delightfully eccentric collection of short fiction and entries that may have been taken from the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

There seem to be two main styles of entries on the blog. Some are self-contained pieces of fiction, like the poignant "Then Before If". These pieces seem to play around with physical and metaphysical concepts, making the reader think deeply about time travel and other such possibilities.

Other entries are totally ridiculous Wikipedia-style entries. One such piece is "The Projectile Heart", informing readers that human hearts can eject from human bodies, much like the innards of sea cucumbers.

Unlike most entries on this site, there is no direct connection between different entries. However, as the author says, each entry paints a piece of a larger cosmology – a very weird one!

Editor’s First Impression

By Chris Poirier, editor

Mar 21, 2016: It’s nonsense, but it’s really nice nonsense. If you enjoy neat little pseudoscience confections, check it out.

THOUSAND WORD BLOG

Not Quite a Serial

By JPV1000, author of Warbler

Nov 6, 2015: So here’s the thing: Thousand Word Blog isn’t exactly a serial. It’s a regularly updating blog with short fiction, some of it quite good. I liked a lot of the stories on there. I will likely read more. It’s excellent for just finding something short to read, but don’t go looking there for something actually serialized. Like I said, many stories are quite good, others are a little meh, but they deal with radically different subject matter. It’s worth it to go and check out the site, but don’t expect to stay long.
