Robert Scotellaro’s new collection of micros, What We Know So Far, which is the Blue Light Press' book winner for 2015, showcases the micro story in all its glory. But first let’s talk micros: The micro is to flash fiction what the sprint is to the one mile run—all stops pulled out, usually landing in the under 250 range, with all the punch of regular flash fiction but half the fat.

Scotellaro strips away all but the essential, resulting in stories that on average are only about one-half page in length but have all the ingredients needed to amaze, beguile, and charm. "Hand Shadows," one of the shortest stories in this collection, gives you an idea as to what's in store: "My old knuckles ache, piled one atop the other: the tightly structured goose I try to animate; too ...more
