The Art of Brevity gathers fresh ideas about the theory and writing of short fiction from around the globe to produce an international, inclusive exploration of the steadily growing field of short story studies. Though Anglo-American scholars have served as the primary developers of contemporary short story theory since the field's inception in the 1960s, this volume adds the contributions of scholars living in other parts of the world. Such Anglo-American pioneers as Mary Rohrberger, Charles May, Susan Lohafer, and John Gerlach join with short fiction scholars at universities in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Canada to build academic bridges and expand the field, geographically as well as conceptually. Contributors to the volume weave together themes of time, space, compression, mystery, reader response, and narrative closure. They discuss writers as varied as Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Sarah Orne Jewett, James Joyce, Franz Kafka, Ernest Hemingway, Mavis Gallant, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Margaret Atwood, Alice Munro, and Robert Olen Butler. the nineteenth-century queer short story, and contemporary Danish short shorts.

Brevity in conversation is a window to the workings of the mind. It is both a multifaceted topic of deep philosophical importance and a phenomenon that serves as a testing ground for theories in linguistics, psycholinguistics and computer modeling. Speakers use elliptical constructions and exploit salient features of the conversational environment, a process of pragmatic enrichment, so as to pack a great deal into a few words. They also tailor their words to theirparticular conversational partners. In Brevity, distinguished linguists, philosophers and cognitive scientists shed new light on economy in discourse. The book will appeal to linguists, philosophers, and psychologists at advanced undergraduate level and above.

A welcome breath of fresh air. Really funny stuff. A terrific comic now becomes a terrific book." Authors Guy Endore-Kaiser and Rodd Perry have crashed the party, and the world of cartooning will never be the same. In fact, they are arguably the freshest, most original and clever of all cartoonists out there. Their comic strip Brevity features a smorgasbord of nerds, animals, and sporks in unusual yet relatable situations. For example: * The five-second food-dropping rule does not apply to sewer workers. * The Hypnotato dares you to look into his eyes. * The combover eagle (you have to see it to believe it.) * The angry pin-the-tail-on-the-donkeys paying a nighttime visit to the birthday boy to settle a score. Brevity has been described as "the soul of wit." Indeed, this wily wit fused with minimalist illustration has launched its popularity into the stratosphere. Brevity will be at the top of every cartoon lover's wish list.

In Brevity, David Galef provides a guide to writing flash fiction, from tips on technique to samples by canonical and contemporary authors to provocative prompts that inspire powerful stories in a little space. Galef traces the genre back to its varied origins, from the short-short to nanofiction, with examples that include vignettes, prose poems, character sketches, fables, lists, twist stories, surrealism, and metafiction. The authors range from the famous, such as Colette and Borges, to today's voices, like Roxane Gay and Bruce Holland Rogers. A writer and longtime creative writing teacher, Galef also shows how flash fiction skills translate to other types of writing. Brevity is an indispensable resource for anyone working in this increasingly popular form. For more information, see davidgalef.com/brevity.

A terrific comic now becomes a terrific book." -Larry King Did you know that da Vinci sketched the prototype for the iPod? Or that before settling on cookies, Chinese restaurants experimented with putting fortunes in broccoli? Learn more about life in Brevity. Authors Guy Endore-Kaiser and Rodd Perry combine their satirical tendencies with a minimalist illustration style to create Brevity, a single-panel comic that Shakespeare himself declares "the soul of wit." This Brevity treasury features cartoons from the Brevity and Brevity 2 book collections. No sporks, spheres, penguins, or superheroes were injured in the creation of this treasury. Brevity dares to ponder such thoughtful perplexities as the difference in fulfillment between hot-air and cold-air balloon rides, the inherent dilemmas involved in eating Chinese alphabet soup, and the pros and cons of playing the violin or the fiddle.

When Ireland (along with much of the rest of the world) went into lockdown last spring, we scratched our heads and wondered what to do to help lift people's spirits.* We joined forces with Irish Pensions & Finance and ran a competition celebrating Irish people's love of a good story – and a good laugh. There were only two requirements: make it funny, and make it (fairly) short. We were overwhelmed by the response: we received hundreds of entries, from all over the island (and further afield), written by people from all walks of life. Comedian (and now bookseller) Kevin Gildea agreed to judge the entries. There could only be three winners (well four, in fact: the top prize was split between two outstanding stories) – but the entries were so good, we decided to gather the best of them into a book. And here they are – from the sublime to the ridiculous. Think Graham Norton's Big Red Chair to Samuel Beckett's humour – and all points in between. The result is: Wit from Lockdown Ireland. The contributors are Alan Brady, Sam Windrim, Fiona Whyte, Alan Howley, Noel Dillon-Daly, Eamonn Colfer, Mark Manning, Maria O'Rourke, Rebecca Kennedy, Shane McDonnell, Dan McKenna, Adrian Martin, Brendan Caldwell, A. J. McCallion, Gary Arkins, Steve Coronella, T. K.

Cut the fat from your presentation, and quickly get to the “Aha” moment! Your audience doesn’t need every encyclopedic detail.

“Not everyone gets ill. I don’t know why, but people react differently to the virus. Some die. Some live. Some… change.” “Will, what’s the matter? You all right, buddy?” As the last word of Rye’s question left his mouth, Will’s eyes refocused on him. His lips curled back, showing off gore-encrusted canines stretching at least three quarters of an inch farther than the rest of his teeth. The following snarl, and his red irises, gave no indication that he knew who they were. The moment he lunged, both men pointed their guns in his direction, screaming for him to stop. He didn’t.
