Fowler, Angela Adair
Little People is a collection of short fiction preceded by a critical introduction. The stories share a loose thematic bond of being about people who consider themselves flawed or unimportant. The introduction, ?The Importance of Plot,? explores how Robert Olen Butler and Stephen King have influenced me as a writer struggling to write interesting, resonant plots in my short fiction. I also explore how King?s advice in his book On Writing helped me improve my prose and become a more disciplined writer.
