Norma Huss - Shorts  (Stories and Otherwise)


My shortest story ever was in celebration of Sisters in Crime's 25th anniversary. I was one of several Guppies (that's a SinC chapter) who wrote 25-word mysteries. Here's mine.

Fast Eddie fleeced a dozen dowagers, then showered gems on Sweet Sue. Bang, Bang, he's dead. Sue beat the rap with airtight alibi---times twelve.

As one of the 52 authors, I contributed two short shorts  ("The White Widow" and "A Long Look Back") to this 25 YEARS IN THE REARVIEW MIRROR, a  permafree e-book published in 2012.  Available at:    Amazon  Smashwords
