Reviews for Creating Short Fiction

To those who hunger to be writers I commend this book without reservation. --Harlan Ellison What Knight doesn't know about writing the short story cannot be put into expository prose anyway. --Algis Budrys Knight is one of the preeminent teachers of writing in this country. [This book] should be considered essential for all beginning writers . . . not to mention a few others, who've forgotten the valuable information it contains. --Lucius Shepard, author of The Jaguar Hunter
