Cover Stories “hints at the future of the short story.” 3

Playwright, author, actor and teacher Joey Madia over at New Mystics Reviews was kind enough to read and review Cover Stories:

This excellent collection¬—“100 stories, 10 authors, 1 new genre” (plus an intro by Mike Dawson and an Afterword by Sean P. Murray¬) hints at the future of the short story. Longer, but just as visually rich, as flash fiction, these euphicational stories seek to reproduce the compressed narrative structure of the songs on which they were based.

Naturally, he’s got a lot more to say about the anthology, which you can read here, including what his favorite stories are.

If you haven’t purchased your copy of Cover Stories, now is as good as any time to check it out.
