This is a project I’m working on, pretty much on a whim really, in parallel with writing a novel and a collection of longer short stories. The idea is to put out flash fiction, of between 300 to 400 words, presented like 7 inch singles. This is what they look like:
This is the first one. Each will be produced in a limited run of ten and will have a different sleeve.
As you might expect, there is an A side and a B side to each.
Below are the labels for the ones I’ve produced so far.
I’ll update the page as I go.
Release 1 – It’s a Shame About Evan Dando (A Side) | Instrumental (B Side)
Release 2 – Eponymous (A Side) | Ten Things Jackie Wilson Never Said (B Side)
This really is just a bit of a lark, and if I attend any open mic nights or readings anywhere I’ll probably have a few on me to give away. All the stories will, however, also appear here on the Blog so you don’t have to get hold of one to read them. How do you find them? Well, you can do one of two things:
- Click on the labels above to get to the Blog Post associated to that story
- Go to the Categories section of the right sided menu on the Blog. It’s underneath Inane Twitter Stuff and Blogs Well Worth Following. Select the category 7″ Fiction and away you go. There will probably be some there that I haven’t designated as A or B sides yet.
At some point, if I get enough of them together, I will probably group them into an ebook or something called, yes you guessed it, Now That’s What I Call 7″ Fiction…
