Author James Dryden weaves note-perfect irony and good-natured wit into “Short Time,” while illustrating the pliability of the flash fiction format—no matter what genre he tackles: science fiction, horror, romance, juvenile or just plain silliness. Though most of the forty-six stories in “Short Time” are told in four hundred words or less, Dryden includes a few longer works at the end of the collection, such as the soul warming “Boy Wonder,” in which a father tries to answer his son’s whimsical but endearing questions. As with all flash fiction, “Short Time” is a quick and easy read, and the stories in this collection will replay in your mind long after you have finished the very last sentence.
