Short story trailer
Check out this animated trailer to a new short story in Electric Literature. The story "Your Fate Hurtles Down at You" is by Jim Shepard, and I'll admit it -- the trailer worked on me. I'd love to get a copy of Electric Literature and read this.
I have seen trailers for books before. A few have been well done, but most have looked slapped together by the author using software downloaded for free.
This is the first time I've seen anything for a short story and it's the first time I've seen something done so well.
It makes me want to write for Electric Literature and I've never even read the publication.
