"A basic tenet of the book is that the short storyor rather, 'short fiction'is not simply a shorter form of the novel but instead a distinct form with its own set of principles. . . . Those interested in a stimulating overview and in-depth treatment of this surprisingly vast field will benefit by reading this well-researched volume. Highly recommended."—Choice
