Goodreads Description:A sleep-deprived author mixes up her metaphors.
A graphic designer has too much time on his hands.
Twenty writers, fueled by copious amounts of chocolate, dream up quirky, funny, and occasionally creepy stories.
And the Pink Snowbunnies in Hell Flash-Fiction Anthology was born.
These are very short stories, under a thousand words each. Some have actual bunnies. Some take rather offbeat trips through the underworld. And some just have a character that shares the sleep-deprived author’s mixed metaphors.
All proceeds from this anthology are going to local animal shelters. Pink snowbunnies can take care of themselves, but thank you for helping us support those animals who do need a little assistance.

Okay, I know what you are thinking because I was thinking the same thing when I first saw this book and its title. I was thinking, What.The.Heck.
But, let me tell you, this anthology was great, it really was. Yes every story really did have a pink snowbunny references and usually something to do with hell, but you know what? the stories were hilarious and super short. They were the perfect length to read while you are waiting in line or at a doctor's office or just whenever you want to read something that will only take a few minutes and you know it is going to be funny or bizarre or just plain unique.
While I didn't love every story, I did really like a lot of them and I definitely think it is worth the read.
Some of my favorites were by authors that I hadn't even heard of but will now be checking out their other books.
Thanks for posting a review! I haven't seen many yet, although I've been looking. Hope I'm one of those authors you'll be checking out now, too.ReplyDelete
The collection does appear to have something for just about everyone, and the proceeds go to animal shelters, which is awesome. As with any anthology, there were rejections, including some that I thought were genuinely funny and interesting. My rejected attempt at a humorous story can be found here. Debora Geary did a great job arranging and editing the collection, and it's really cool to see such a nice review posted for a flash fiction anthology. So thanks for taking the time to read and review it!ReplyDelete
