In Holiday Shorts author Garfield Collins presents his readers with a collection of stories that are very special because they are carefully crafted to provide the maximum amount of information and entertainment in the most compact amount of words possible, but without losing any of the zest of the plots and story ideas through the medium of what is called 'flash fiction.' Another term used is bite-sized fiction.
In 130 stories readers are introduced to the story of a girl and a pearl necklace (read more about the importance of this story in his preface to his book).
Learn what happened to Carol in Coffee Pacifica, what happened when Gerry met Shelley, how Felix was introduced to the concept of Serendipity by his walkabout uncle Jim.
Find out how an article in New Scientist caused a reversal in the smooth running of the space time continuum, but in a good way.
And learn about Rocco and how he established his Fiction Factory. And how his concepts came back to really give him a very factual boot up the rear.
It's described as being perfect for the busy reader, which is true. It's also perfect for the reader who loves good, entertaining and innovative fiction.
It's well over 330 pages of great fiction and will make the perfect Christmas present for the bookwork in your life.
It is published by Matador at £8.99.
