The Overwhelming Urge - Andersen Prunty This is a collection of very brief fiction, 66 stories in 140 pages, by Bizarro author Andersen Prunty. I suspect most of these are earlier than his novels and they are clearly under the definition of what I consider Bizarro fiction, meaning they are weird, not at all plot-based and usually vague in meaning. My main issue with these writings is my issue with all flash fiction. They tend to read like writing exercises rather than stories meant to convey meaning or even entertainment. However, they are still very good and surpasses most the flash fiction I've read. While I prefer his novellas to his short fiction, he still demonstrates that he is one of the best writers in the Bizarro genre.
