Fragments of Fear (book) by Michael Kelso
The beginning. This book is the one that got me started writing short stories and flash fiction horror. It's an incredible challenge to write any story in under five hundred words, but to make it interesting and frightening ramps the difficulty up quite a bit. But don't worry, there's plenty of chills and thrills in this collection of tiny tales of terror. Would you follow a voice into the woods? If your eternal soul hinged on a single essay question would you go to Heaven or Hell?
