Kristin B. Bodreau (krissy22247) | 719 comments Hello All,

So one of the things I love about wandering about on the internet is stumbling across fantasy and sci-fi micro-fiction. I find most of them on Pinterest but I'm always looking for ways to find more. Two of my favorites:

They Told Us to Tell You Hello

The God of Arepo

I also generally enjoy anything under the "Humans are Weird" tag. Or anything about modern monsters or rethought mythology.

Something about these tiny little stories delivering honest, insightful or funny messages just makes my day. (Or makes me cry. Like the two above. But in a good way.)

Does anyone have any suggestions for micro-fiction that they have come across?

I read about four tweets and immediately backed her book on Unbound. I can't wait to get my copy!

I also bought the Scalzi book on Kindle.

This became unexpectedly expensive. I am by no means complaining. :)

There are way worse addictions.

Can't attest to the quality lately as I've not actually read many for a year or so, but I did very much enjoy the first several issues that I read.

The Fox's Tower and Other Tales
T.R. Darling
for some GR links....

Beachesnbooks I really loved The Girl Wakes by Carmen Lau. It's an indie collection of dark feminist fairytale retellings. I love microfiction too but I don't come across it that much!
