Hugh Howey launched the idea on Kboards, a forum for Kindle readers, but also the meeting place of an active community of indie writers.
The result is this anthology of 101 very short stories by 101 authors.
To make it more attractive for you, the reader, we set ourselves a limit of a thousand words. You should be able to read each story in under five minutes — on your desktop computer, laptop, or tablet at home or in the office, but also on your smartphone, on the go, while you are commuting or waiting at a coffee shop for your significant other to arrive.
We included as many genres as we could. We hope that maybe, with only five minutes of your time on the line that would otherwise be wasted anyway, you'll be tempted to venture outside your comfort zone and try out some new genres and new authors.

Bounty hunters are the closest thing to law enforcement across the wastelands, but most folks can't tell the difference between the criminals and their chasers. Havoc Joe Ballast and his team at the Haft Agency are trying to change that by picking their own targets and going after the worst criminals. But that's not working out so well for them.
They should've stuck to the rules. Their first target, the bloodthirsty Red Dead gang, is terrorizing hapless refugees. Things go bad fast when Havoc and his friends are ambushed and forced to flee to the lawless Wilds. Stranded in deadly territory, the hunters must align with a secret rebel group to survive while turning the tables on their merciless enemies.
Join the bounty hunters as they fight for their lives in the post-apocalyptic wastelands. Their enemies may think they have won, but the hunters are just getting started.
There are only two rules for being a bounty hunter in the wastelands: One, get paid, and two, never make it personal. Joe Ballast isn't very good at either.
Joe Ballast is a bounty hunter, living just inside the law…usually. But when Roderick Sloan, a vicious crime lord, goes after one of Joe's friends, Joe must go deep undercover in Sloan's crime syndicate to take it down and save his friend and free the oppressed town of Clearwater. The only problem with that plan is the two hundred armed gangsters standing in his way.
Joe faces impossible odds, but Sloan's about to find out that you should never bet against the Bounty Hunter.
