There is a spectral beauty to be found here; a stark contrast to the Shadow City. Though the form has largely been deprived of the lucrative and popular ecosystem of magazines that gave birth to it, the passing of a century has left writers with an array of styles, modes, and moves to deploy at will.

Yvette, COMPLETE SHORT STORIES VOLUME TWO GUY DE MAUPASSANT 213-291 (1970) Word Count: 1552. Leslie Marmon Silko is one of the most celebrated Native American writers of her generation. But understand that this doesn't mean we want excessive gunplay.

That's a good place to start, but after a while, vary the format. Send us worlds our readers can romanticize about, characters that jump off the page. It is, however, an excellent work, and I would suggest that if you read Stitches or Sold and survived, this would be a collection for you to consider.
