Canto MCML

“Canto MCML,” by Lewis Shiner, F&SF, Jan/Feb 2012 — a short short at 1200 words, this is among the best flash pieces I’ve read. What I admire the most is the craft: the details are chosen to convey just as much as you need to know, and no more. There’s much I can learn from Shiner. Highly recommended.
