What the critics are saying about Short, plus an interview with Short's editor, Alan Ziegler, in The Believer:
"From humor to heartbreak and back again, the stories and short works in Short offer a whirlwind tour exploring what the written word is capable of, the tip of an impossibly valuable iceberg." --San Francisco Book Review
In The Believer, Lincoln Michel interviews Alan Ziegler:
"Comprising pieces dating as far back as the year 1500, this collection is perhaps the best introduction to short prose that both experienced and inexperienced readers could wish for.” --Pastiche
"Important and impressive." --HTMLGiant
"Perfect for the busy reader...[and] good for those interested in experimental writing." --starred review, Library Journal
