September 15, 2012 — 7 Comments

Today only, go to to download the FREE Kindle version of Eric Bosse’s terrific story collection Magnificent Mistakes. Lots of flash fictions and in this collection of 19 stories. Here’s an excerpt from one of my favorite short-short stories, “House of Ghosts”:

The back door swings open, and the ghost of my father’s lover stands there in the moonlight. I offer him tea. He accepts and smiles as if death were an exquisite pleasure. I pour hot water into a World’s Best Mom mug and tell him it’s been five days since the night my wife called me David.

Download it today to read the rest of the story (it’s only two pages!).

I interviewed Eric Bosse back in March for the How to Become a Writer Series. Read it here:

Eric Bosse’s story collection, Magnificent Mistakes, was published by Ravenna Press in the fall of 2011. His stories have appeared in The Sun, Zoetrope, Mississippi Review, Exquisite Corpse, Night Train, The Collagist, Wigleaf, and several other journals and anthologies. He teaches at the University of Oklahoma and lives in Norman with his wife and kids.

    Excellent! Grabbing it for my iPhone now. Sounds like a fun collection to do a write up on. Thanks for the heads up.


    Thank you, Ryan Sanford Smith!


    Just grabbed it for my kindle – thanks!

    Having read this I thought it was very enlightening.

    I appreciate you taking the time and energy
    to put this informative article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of
    time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
