1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Tynan R. Rampling on Feb. 28 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is a fantastic little book full of a bunch of short stories (under a thousand words.) This makes it great for the coffee table, the nightstand, or (!) the bathroom, anywhere where you might find yourself with ten or fifteen minutes to spare on an engaging story. It's much nicer to pick this book up than it is to throw on the television, or flip through a magazine. It's harder to put down, though- I often find myself burning through quite a few of these in one sitting, they're addicting!

These are the best stories of 2008 from [...] a website where authors contribute their short stories that you can read for free, well, everyday. The quality of the stories is already quite high, and I think the editors did a great job of deciding which ones made the cut. They aren't throwaways- I'm always left with something to think about. In fact I think the quality of the stories is what sets this book apart from other collections.

It's nice to read online, but the book version is great because of how convenient it is to keep around. The only thing it doesn't have is little feet that you can unfold to make it into it's own little coffee table. What gives?

The Best of Every Day Fiction Feb. 5 2009
By Tommy B. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
With Every Day Fiction, there's always something for everyone. This is the "Best of" collection, which covers the highlights of EDF's first year of fiction. Personal favorites include "The Surrender," "For Cabbages and Ale," "Monochrome," "The Philosopher in the Dark," and "Desert Island Solitaire." These and many more gems come together to make this a volume highly worth checking out.

Quick tid-bits of great fiction July 8 2011
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First of all, the best way to get an idea of how the stories read you should just go to everydayfiction.com and read some free stories. The anthology collects some of the best from the site so no better review than actually sampling the real thing, right?

Now to the actual collection: there are numerous stories in all kinds of genres and dozens of styles so even if you hate a few, there are a ton more to read and enjoy. Even better, each story will only take a few minutes to read so you can quickly read some stuff while waiting for your PC to boot up or while on the train or while using the bathroom (Preferably not all three at once).

Overall a great collection and a great premise to focus on very short stories, which throw you right in the middle of things.
