Bruce Holland Rogers

Bruce Holland Rogers is an American. He is a full-time writer, and teacher of writing, who has found an interesting way to eke out a modest living. For $5 a year he offers to supply readers with three short-short stories a month. That's 36 stories a year, or fourteen cents a story. So far, 608 people in some 60 countries have signed up, and most of them re-subscribe at the end of the year.

If you want to take a look at what he offers, go see It's intriguing, at the least. A French-language version of the service will start in January, and may be followed by a Portuguese version.

What you will find, as you poke around, is that Bruce is no slouch. He has a published bibliography which goes back to 1989, teaches at some respectable colleges, and has won some distinguished prizes: two Nebula awards (1996 and 1998) and a Bram Stoker (1998).

He has also written a book on the problems of surviving as a writer.
