A drabble is an extremely short work of fiction of exactly one hundred words in length, not necessarily including the title. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.-wikipedia [full article]
101 Fiction is dedicated to the drabble.
How much story can be told in a hundred words? How big a world can be evoked, how deep a mind? Can a mere hundred words contain philosophies, characters, action and more? We believe it can.
The trick with drabbles is evocation and concision. Every word has to earn its place and every word has to work a hundred times harder. A drabble has to inspire the reader's imagination: a spark to ignite flames, a seed from which a mighty oak may grow...
Ultimately, 101 Fiction is devoted to entertainment. A platter of amuse-bouche for the mind. A selection of work from across the spectrum of genre fiction, written by a wide range of authors with different styles and attitudes.
The intent is variety. A chiller, then a thriller. One to make you smile, another to make you think. Woods draped in shadows, then sunlight on bright wings. From starships to dirty alleyways, magic to insanity. A hundred words of heroics, then a hundred more of villainy.
101 Fiction aims to deliver a story you can start and finish over a cup of tea, but one that stays with you all day.
