"Here is a single place to celebrate all the wondrous and wonderful bigness of the tiniest of stories. Best Microfiction is amazing. A great accomplishment."
-- Grant Faulkner, executive director of National Novel Writing Month
"Short, sharp, funny, and sometimes dark. Penguins, too. The microfictions in Best Microfiction 2020 are compressed works of wondrous delight."
-- Marcy Dermansky, author of Very Nice.
"Reading these tiny, bright micro-fictions, I can't help thinking of the scattered, chaotic molecules of coal, buried deep in black earth, compressed into diamonds, an effortless-seeming mine craft, like there's nothing to it at all. Impossible not to marvel at these micro-fictions, such tiny bright suns as these."
-- Lex Williford, author of Superman on the Roof
