Jenni Doherty (Editor/Compiler)
In this fast-moving age of juggling work and family life, commuting and queuing, overtime competing with quality time, it has become harder for people to find extended opportunities to relax and read. The Wonderful World of Worders is our panacea - a restful lay-by on the manic motorway that is our daily lives.
Worders are micro-stories varying from 60 to 250 words. Our collection - lovingly gathered, nurtured and presented by Jenni Doherty - contains 525 Worders from 72 authors and 27 countries.
The stories are alive with originality, craft, emotion and ideas from all walks of life and corners of the world, many first created within online writing communities. They range from contemporary modern-day issues to horror, from science fiction to romance, humour to grief, religion to satire, philosophy to surrealism, experimental to wacky - all genres and styles that we have come to expect from full novels.
Fresh, fast and fun, this collection proves we can communicate at anytime, any place and anywhere. It also proves that fiction continues to be a stimulating, challenging, boundary-breaking genre with many dimensions still to be explored. Let the literary adventure begin!
Foreword from Derry author Sean O'Reilly.
