Format: Paperback
Thanks to Jay Bonestell:
A SECOND CHANCE: His love had gone. In despair, he flung himself off the Golden Gate Bridge. Coincidentally, a few yards away, a girl made her own suicide plunge. The two passed in mid-air. Their eyes met. Their chemistry clicked. It was true love. They realized it. Three feet above the water.
Breathtaking!

I read this book last summer and some of the stories are still lurking in my head... quite an amazing feat for tales only 55 words long! Each story (with few exceptions) made me feel as if I had just read a novel. This book is essential to any story-lover's library.

Each selection is a jewel- proving that a few words can speak reams about love, hate, jealousy and humor. A must for any budding writer.

I am amazed at how truly entertaining these stories can be in such a short space of time. The tricky endings on some came as such a surprise, that I found myself rewinding the tape to listen to them again. A clever writing style that shows that less is often more. Funny, creepy, romantic. Very well done.

This book contains incredibly complete and haunting 55-word stories (this review is 55 words). Horror. Romance. Mystery. Crime. Many have trick endings. You'll read this wonderful book repeatedly. I've always wanted to write a 55-word story about a hideous monster who devours people who write too many reviews for Amazon but no one would believe

This book was so inspirational that I plan to submit some 55 Fiction for the next version.

Perhaps we should all limit our book reviews to 55 words... Like haiku, this genre is minimalist. Like haiku, the best is eternal; the worst is DOA. This tiny volume sits on my shelf silenty questioning me .... What would Thomas Carlyle or Sir Walter Scott have thought? ( And this review now is at 55 words....)

Wonderful little treats, each one of them. Like nibbling at candy. I tried to read just a few at a time, to savour the experience, but they were just too addictive. I have just bought the second in the series, and I can't wait to get it!
