I write short fiction and short non-fiction exclusively. I've published about 40 or 50 articles on various subjects and thirteen short stories, mostly in my Jack Brady series. (The most recent one may be found gracing the current issue of Thrilling Detective.)

I got to looking around the blogosphere the other day and discovered an interesting fact: I couldn't find any blogs that examined the short forms of writing exclusively. (I'm not saying there aren't any; I'm just saying I couldn't find any.) There are lots of blogs about writing in general, about mystery writing, science fiction, screen writing, TV writing, and non-fiction. Some of those mention the short forms now and then. Sarah Weinman, for instance, is very good about plugging the new issues of the mystery webzines. But there isn't anything about just the short forms.

So, I decided to do something about this perceived hole. This blog will consist exclusively of my thoughts about and reviews of short mystery fiction, short science fiction, and short non-fiction. I might throw in the occasional rant about incursions against the First Amendment. It just depends on how I feel that day.

So sit back and enjoy. And feel free to comment and tell me I'm out of my freakin' mind. I'm doing this in hopes I'll learn something to help my writing. I'll probably learn something from you.

Great idea, Jack. I'm sure I'll become a regular reader, and equally sure that you will become a member of my blogroll.

Bob, the blog is great. It will be fun to read your reviews of the stories after I have read the actual stories. Good to have you here!

I came to read the comment on "Cold Fire" and stayed to read all the others. Your comments are very objective, which I have noticed isn't always so with other editors/critics or whatever they are called. Others tend to make comments that tend to be coloured by the style they write, instead of reading the story in the author's style. Very refreshing and honest.
