Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer

Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer I’m thinking about writing this book review in the form of hint fiction pieces. * If you don’t know what hint fiction is, it’s a story that reads like a poem because it’s told in twenty-five words or less. * I’m liking where this…
