 Spontaneous Combustion 

 Volume I 


Spontaneous Combustion is the world's first book-in-a-day.


Each written in 24 hours, the 11 stories contained in this volume represent the gamut of creative fiction talent practicing in the Twin Cities circa 2012. From Mystery to Comedy to Science Fiction, no two tales are similar in style or genre. The authors wove three story prompts, given at the beginning of the day-long writing marathon, into the fabric of their fictional yarns like master costumers with keyboard looms.
