Lit Matters

SmokeLong Quarterly has been churning out incredible stories for more than ten years, and they've never asked for one penny from anyone. They've given so much to the world of sudden fiction. You may have seen my post on Facebook about the Best of the First Ten Years Anthology. It's a must read for anyone interested in the genre.

SmokeLong has just initiated a Kickstarter campaign with the intention of vamping up the site. SmokeLong's going to get even better. Old School's going Future School. And you could do your bit to help it. Please do what you can. The world needs lit, and it needs it suddenly.

I must be off,


Christopher Allen is the author of Conversations with S. Teri O'Type (a Satire), an episodic adult cartoon about a man struggling with expectations. Allen's award-winning fiction and non-fiction have appeared or are forthcoming in Indiana Review, Quiddity, SmokeLong Quarterly's Best of the First Ten Years anthology, Prime Number Magazine, [PANK], Necessary Fiction, Word Riot, Bootsnall Travel and Chicken Soup for the Soul. A finalist at Glimmer Train in 2011, Allen has been nominated for Best of the Net and the Pushcart Prize twice.
