The curiosity that kills the cat need not be its own.

The Shortest Story: Postcard Stories from Impossible Worlds is a weekly series of "postcard-sized" Flash Fiction written by Peter Chiykowski. Each story, sized to fit on a postcard, is shown over an appropriate photograph which was frequently the inspiration for the story.

The stories cross many genres - horror, comedy, fable, science fiction, fantasy, and more. Many riff off of stock Aesops or other common phrases, finding new uses for them. Some, such as The Prison of Forgetting, make use of animation or transition to tell their story.


Stories are posted weekly on Tuesdays.
