Flash Bangs: a sparkling array of hundred-word short stories by Andy Underwood is a prime example of Flash Fiction aimed at general readers, who will be excited by a new hundred-word story, every day, for a hundred days. Readers will enjoy getting a quick entertainment fix from these tiny gems, when their reading-time is limited. These flash fiction tales are also ideal for demonstrating e-readers and web posting, because of their compact yet compelling format. These one hundred different tales leave out no genre; they will amuse, inspire and delight all booklovers, who may dip into the collection when they have five minutes to spare... say, while sitting in their commuting transport, or perhaps, while taking a lunch break. In this book, one can find humour and drama, protest and celebration, intrigue and science; even ghost stories and animal lovers are catered for. Favourite twists and turns in these stories reveal the author's commitment to nature conservation, family values and physical well-being. It will astonish readers that even subjects like alcohol-abuse, human-relationships and historical-drama can be tackled in such a novel and succinct fashion. The flexibility of the author's treatment of diverse topics ensures that all the angles are explored; each of the hundred stories appears to take a new and refreshing approach, as though the themes come from the pens of a wide range of writers. In addition, students of literature will get an inspiring introduction, in the author's foreword, to the art form of Drabbles... as hundred-word short stories are called. The author shares his artistic passion in this foreword and one can uncover the original stimulus for some of the stories. Andy Underwood encourages his readers to follow his example and try writing flash fiction for themselves. Because these tales will be revisited so often, it is recommended that the hardback edition is purchased. Everyone will enjoy handing around this book and talking about their favourite story; because this social pastime is so easy, when these Flash Bangs can be read and absorbed so readily. The book's author, Andy Underwood, is well-known as a photographer and observer of life, who regularly gives talks on travels with his camera, the joys of scuba diving, climbing and caving. He is a keen writer about his artistic and adventurous life; Andy Underwood plans to launch many more books of short stories and wild anecdotes about the great outdoors. Readers of Flash Bangs: a sparkling array of hundred-word short stories will discover that the author cares deeply about the directions in which modern business, science and technology may be leading the World. His writing promotes civilisation, health and education, without losing sight of the goal of entertaining and amusing his readers. This new book will make a great gift, to suit an extensive diversity of tastes and it will prove the saying... variety is the spice of life! One Hundred Varieties... Do not miss this book!
