A common type of ProseFiction and a good way for new authors to start out. Short stories are any stories that run up to 7,500 words in length, though some definitions place them as long as 20,000.

* Creator/IssacAsimov edited the 1978 collection of ''100 Great Science Fiction Short Short Stories''. Yes, that's two "shorts" - not a single story is over five pages - most are two and a half. Sadly it's been out of print for a long time, but can still be found in used book distributors and stores.
