>"The Evil B.B. Chow and Other Stories" available for pre-ordering

>From Amazon: Steve Almond, the bestselling writer who took us on a cross-country journey to reveal his long love affair with chocolate in Candyfreak (and who appeared in Issue Four of SLQ) returns with his second accomplished short-story collection The Evil B.B. Chow and Other Stories. Once again he has produced a funny, bracing, sometimes shocking, always imaginative collection of stories and characters: a young magazine editor enduring a bizarre blind date; a couple who are sure that they have been given implants by space aliens; a young boy desperate to please his father with his baseball prowess, who ends up fatally wounding another boy during a game; a creative-writing teacher struggling to resist his seductive student.

With tremendous heart and an unmatchable wit, Almond proves–as he did with the acclaimed My Life in Heavy Metal and the bestselling Candyfreak–to be one of the most original writers of our time.

Pre-order it now.

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
