Editorial Reviews

Author - Max Dubinsky
Bunting proves the art of the short story is not only far from dead, but can also breathe life into the career of the writer. He shares the secrets hidden in plain sight of getting published, and most importantly, teaches the writer two critical tools of the craft: how to be at peace and how to rest. Two things I believe every writer needs in his arsenal.
