Publisher's Summary

Billboard magazine had this to say about The World's Shortest Stories Vol. 1, "What is most impressive in this collection of great stories is the sheer variety. Let's hope a second volume of these tiny gems will not be long in coming!" Well, here it is! Love and death, and all of the horror in between. A second helping of the most amazing short stories ever written; each one just 55 words long! Imagine O. Henry's tales if he'd only had the back of a business card to write upon. Includes stories from Peanuts creator Charles Schulz, Barnaby Conrad, Alfred C. Martino, Neil Steinberg, Herbert Gold, Norman Lear, Larry Niven, and more.
