“Reading habits may have changed a great deal. But people still tell each other stories the same way they always have. It remains one of the most universal and human of endeavors. We sense the conflict, steel ourselves for the climax, and marvel at the denouement and resolution. Without even knowing it, we yearn for the enchantment; we long to read a tale that turns on a c ...more

I have a confession to make: The first time I found Fast Food Fiction: Short Stories to Go at a library years ago, I thought it was a collection of stories set in fast food chains. Please don’t judge me (even if I judged the title).

It was hard to decide on how many stars I'd give this book because there were some I pieces that struck me, there were some that didn't. All in all I just had an overwhelming amount of pride for all of these Filipino writers. This book inspired me to write flash fiction more and more. It is indeed a challenge to fit all the emotions and descriptions in just 200-300 words which is why I really like how this book was conveyed. It deserves a whomping ⭐⭐⭐⭐ stars. ...more

It's quite difficult to pin the rating down on this one because there are pieces that are really great and there are those that are either very shallow/ cliché/ sometimes I just don't get the point/ sometimes it would like something, I, a lowly dirt bag could also write.
I have 6 signatures in the book and I was just so happy to meet some of the authors. Some of them were my teachers and literary idols since I had awakened to the Philippine literary scene thr

Most of the stories are fascinating. Like one of the writer's review here in Goodreads, I found some of the stories bleh, pretentious. She explains it better.

I noticed more speculative fiction, whatchamacallit, fantasy/SF, a sign of how the genre has grown locally, since the first FF edition.

Overall, this edition has again sparked my love for short fiction.

It's a good travel read. I read this whole book whilst travelling. A total of three (3) two-way air travel.

I actually submitted an entry. Written in that hidden Starbucks one rainy Sunday afternoon, behind the Esplanade.
