Half A Year.
Six months ago Little Fiction launched with two stories from two unknown writers, and a simple concept: fashion the short story after the mp3 by making it digital, portable and free.
The concept seems to have caught on, and next week we’ll be releasing our sixteenth title (seventeen including our Listerature collection).
With no (or limited) expectations heading into this, Little Fiction feels like it’s been a decent success so far.
But the true credit, of course, belongs to the writers and the stories they’ve written.
It belongs to Will Johnson (Paint by Numbers, and Year of the Dragon), who — until he recently traded coasts — could have been called Little Fiction West for all the buzz he generated out in Vancouver.
And it belongs to Jay Hosking (Analogue), Selaine Henriksen (Sacrificial Lamb), Meredith Hambrock (Calm, Ghosts), Jeremy Hanson-Finger (Climbing Into The Sun), Kimberely Gillis (Little Robin Deadbreast), and each and every writer in our Listerature compilation.
We’ll only ever be as good as the stories we publish. And I’m both thrilled and amazed with the quality of work we’ve been able to put out, and with the talents we’ve been fortunate to associate ourselves with.
If you haven’t read each and every story yet, they’re all right here for you — digital, portable, and free.
