100 Not Out is a collection of some of Edinburgh author Gordon Lawrie's best 100-word flash fiction stories. Published initially over the last few years in Friday Flash Fiction, they explore every genre – including science fiction, crime, romance, historical fiction and, above all, humour. They're intended as a diversion, to be read on a bus or train journey, perhaps, occasionally thought-provoking but never challenging, and the flash fiction format ensures that the reader is never bored. This is risk-free reading.
Divided into sections on crime, history, art and literature, love and romance, science, horror, sport and leisure, Christmas and a general catch-all Miscellaneous category, Lawrie provides 100 stories of exactly 100 words in length.
