Full disclosure: I wrote one of the stories.

That said: this was a fun anthology of stories. Some great and thought provoking while others are odd. It’s interesting how many associate time travel with murder.

*Note: I have 2 stories in this anthology

I really enjoyed reading all of the different drabbles in this collection. The 'time' theme was fun to write, and all the authors came up with original interpretations and styles for their pieces.

If you like science fiction, time travel stories, and general speculative fiction, this is a good way to sample a range of new authors' works.

I’ve got one of the stories in this collection of drabbles, so I’m not going to review it. What I can say is that I enjoyed working on it. My story plays on the concept of time within a high fantasy setting, hopefully with a little bit of humor thrown in.

This review and others posted over at my blog.

I grabbed a copy of this anthology because my friend Jacob over at Red Star Reviews happens to have a story, or drabble, within and I enjoyed my first foray into micro-fiction. Never before have I read a book composed entirely of stories of 100 words or less! It’s amazing what some can accomplish in so few words.

As with any story collection, not every short did something for me, but I want to highlight my favorites. To keep on brand, my thoughts

Decide to publish a book. Pick a topic—say, time. Challenge 98 authors to weave works of fiction around any aspect of time expressing it in an interesting and meaningful way. By the way, fence each story with 100 words, no more, no less. This challenge succeeded exceptionally well in Chronos: An Anthology of Time Drabbles edited by Eric S. Foley. Each drabble is a full story complete with a beginning, middle and end. I highly recommend that you get a copy and experience the full pleasure of read ...more
This was my first collection of drabbles. They're not all great, but drabbles are tough, and some of them were truly outstanding. I'll seek out more work by the drabble-authors I liked best. ...more

A great collection of bite-size stories

This book had a lot of fun ideas explored 100 words at a time. Many of the drabbles could have supported longer stories, but were refreshing in their brevity. Very fun collection!
