Not even a little bit about short story writing
This is essentially a glossary of types of stories that could be considered under the general genre or short story. It gives you an overview of what delineates each type and some historic examples. This is mostly a book of lists, most of which are repeated ad nauseam throughout.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
There is not a single bit of guidance relating to short story writing. There is nothing about writing at all. This book will do 1 thing and 1 thing only for the short story writer, after you have written something it can tell you how to classify it.
If this where titled "All about Short Stories; a history and examination of the evolution of short stories", then you might have an idea what the book is about.
This book reads like a poorly structured essay answer.
WILL NOT HELP YOU WRITE SHORT STORIES!
