This bombastic collection of short stories is the second volume of the world's only book-in-a-day. Every story was composed during the 24-hour "Spontaneous Combustion" writing marathon. Awaiting you in Vol. II of this explosive literary tradition is a powderkeg of short fiction spanning multiple genres from writers Maxwell Reagan, Claudia Ionescu, Mike Lauer, Nathan Sacks, D. Zane Davis, Stephanie Olson, Claire Hoy, Michael T. Johnson, Scott Burtness, Deidra Purvis, and Randy Holland.
Spontaneous Combustion is the classic "play-in-a-day" theater exercise in literary event form. Sic Semper Serpent gathers writers together, provides them three story prompts, and gives them 24 hours to compose a unique piece of pulp fiction. The favorites are invited back to prose-slam their short stories for a public audience. In the end, everyone casts a vote and the people-chosen "Top Tales" are bound in the next volume. We call it a book-in-a-day; prepare to spontaneously combust.
