In his book On Writing Short Stories, Tom Bailey writes:
“A story creates its own world, often–though not always–with clear or mysterious correspondences to our own, a world in which we are too involved to keep track of what anyone is learning.”
To that end, The Hangover will expand its Fiction Section to present a series of short stories by guest authors.
The brevity of the short story makes it a natural art form for contemporary society, where time is a precious commodity. A ten or twenty minute investment has the potential to pay unending dividends. At worst, a reader is simply entertained–and there’s nothing wrong with that.
It is The Hangover’s pleasure to present the first in its Guest Fiction series, “The Accident” by Maine writer, Joshua Bodwell. It’s a story that will stay with a reader, and there is no higher praise than that. To step into this world, all one has to do is click on the Fiction tab on the header of this page. Experience and enjoy.
