This e-chap is an exercise in writing restraint, and is by a maestro with words: Mr. David Tomaloff. I've had the pleasure of corresponding with him, and he's not just a fabulous writer, but also a photographer, musician, lion tamer, and an Olympic gold medalist in luge. (Okay, I made the last two up.) Read this! There are 13 thirteen-word stories that will send shivers down your spine. It's amazing how, with 13 words, he can form an entire movie script in your head. These are not to be missed. Just in time for Halloween! And they're published by a great, small-independent press, too!

Here's the 13th poem in the book:

{XIII} HE WOKE UP IN THE CAR, his
mouth desperately seeking the water’s surface.


Chilling!
