In Fifty Words! (Micro Fictions) 


An eclectic collection of micro fictions,

each exactly 50 words…


From the Introduction:


Bob has a unique gift for using subtle phrasing and well chosen vocabulary to draw readers into larger worlds, deeper characters, and more refined conflicts, plot points, and thematic explorations than a fixed length of merely 50 words seems like it should ever allow. It requires no hyperbole or special boldness for me to assert that Bob Thurber is the best author of 50-word stories on Earth.
