Tiny Crimes: Very Short Tales of Mystery and Murder (Pre-order) edited by Lincoln Michel and Nadxieli Nieto
"This collection of rabbit-punch stories demonstrate the limitless power and possibilities of crime/noir, a genre not afraid to tell you all about the downtrodden and outsiders who are gonna get you and get you good. Tiny Crimes packs a big wallop." —Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World
Tiny Crimes reimagines the genre of crime writing in 40 very short stories. This anthology gathers leading and emerging literary voices to tell tales of crime and intrigue in only a few hundred words. From the most hardboiled of noirs to the coziest of mysteries, with diminutive double crosses, miniature murders, and crimes both real and imagined, Tiny Crimes rounds up all the usual suspects, and some unusual suspects, too. Benjamin Percy, Amelia Gray, Adam Sternbergh, Yuri Herrera, Julia Elliott, Carmen Maria Machado, Elizabeth Hand, Brian Evenson, Charles Yu, Laura van den Berg, and more scour the underbelly of modern life to expose the criminal, the illegal, and the depraved.
