Flash Fiction : Light Years (24/100)

Sunday, 21 February 2010

... with ...

Light Years
is a work of flash fiction. In fact it is the slowest piece of flash-fiction ever written. In real-time its one hundred words would take exactly 10,000 years to recount. Because of the limitations of a normal human life-span, it has been specially accelerated to the speed of one word per week. It will therefore take just under two years to tell from start to finish.

  1. Hi

    I'm getting quite good with the patience bit..

    Anyway, so off topic - I've mangaged to get the kindle up and running and bought your story!

    That bit was very easy. But I had to follow your links on your previous blog posts as I couldn't do it by just going to the amazon website - I typed kindle/e-short story/simon kewin..nada!


    Take care

  2. Old Kitty,

    Ooh, that's fantastic, many thanks. I've posted a new page on my web site with links to the relevant Amazon page to hopefully make finding things a bit easier. It's here.

    I hope you enjoy the story. Do rate it on Amazon of you get chance!



I'd love to know what you think.
