Stripped is a collection with a twist. Yes, the fiction contained herein includes works from some of the best-known names in flash fiction as well as the work of emerging writers, but the bylines have been removed so you can’t tell who wrote what. What’s more, the stories hinge largely on gender roles — but with the authors’ identites stripped from their stories, editor Ni ...more

An exceptional collection of (anonymous) flash fiction by some of the best short fiction writers out there. And here.

I have a story in this. It's is going to be great fun, figuring out who wrote what.

Is it a book or a game? It is a flash collection of 46 ultra-short stories from 25 to 685 words, but the stories have been STRIPPED of the identities of their authors!

I'm biased, of course, having a story in this anthology--but I love the concept, and it makes for a great read. The authors are listed in the back of the book, but the stories aren't connected directly to their authors. This leaves the reader to speculate about authorial identity, especially authorial gender. It's an interesting, worthwhile experiment. Some time next year, I gather, the authors will be publicly connected to their stories.

Okay, don't be alarmed by the 2-star rating. I've tried to read short stories off and on my entire life. I just can't do it. That's not a criticism of the writers or their products, just a flaw in my feeble brain. BTW I thought the writing was great, but the short story format is just not my cup of tea.

Recommends it for: flash lovers
I'm in this one, so forgive the biased rating. Fascinating premise of gender anonymity. Join the discussion...
