Graham Robert Scott writes science-fiction and horror fiction but is thinking about branching into crime. (The genre, not the profession--not yet, anyway.) His fondness for writing microfiction borders on the unhealthy, as anyone who has seen his Twitter timeline or home page can attest. When he's not creating fictions, he teaches writing and literature as a professor in north Texas. Visit his home page at or follow him on Twitter at @graythebruce.

Fantasy Humor Romance

Herewith follows a rare description longer than the story, the tale itself being a mere 46 words: One summer Saturday, a man goes to the library, where--uncertain what he is looking for, browsing aimlessly, in no hurry to return home to the mortification awaiting him there--he wanders until he stumbles across something which he very much needs, and it is at this moment we begin our story, which never needed this preamble and, you can be assured, will not have been spoiled by it.
