Tiny Crimes: Very Short Tales of Mystery and Murder (Paperback)
Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Forty very short stories that reimagine the genre of crime writing from some of today's most imaginative and thrilling writers "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 gathers leading and emerging literary voices to tell tales of villainy and intrigue in only a few hundred words. From the most hard-boiled 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. With illustrations by Wesley Allsbrook and flash fiction by Carmen Maria Machado, Benjamin Percy, Amelia Gray, Adam Sternbergh, Yuri Herrera, Julia Elliott, Elizabeth Hand, Brian Evenson, Charles Yu, Laura van den Berg, and more, Tiny Crimes scours the underbelly of modern life to expose the criminal, the illegal, and the depraved.
