"Tender and strange, startling and lyrical, witty and nuanced, Ran Walker’s stories lingered in my mind long after I finished reading them. His prose is taut, precise, and economical, but each one of these tiny stories is expansive in the way it enlarges the world through an eclectic mixture of distinctive characters and surprising plots. I’m never quite at ease in a Ran Walker story. And that’s a good thing. He's a master of the 100-word form."

- Grant Faulkner, Executive Director of NaNoWriMo and Co-Founder of 100 Word Story


"Ran Walker is a writer's writer. In Keep It 100, he brings forth so many styles, the reader is virtually assured to experience delight. This book offers a mosaic of lives lived. I will read it again and again and again."

- Maurice Carlos Ruffin, author of The Ones Who Don't Say They Love You and We Cast a Shadow


"These stories may be brief, but they are so substantial they get deep down into your bones and bubble up into your thoughts as you move through the day. I’m amazed that Ran Walker can stuff so much meaning and power into so few words, but he does it one hundred times in Keep It 100. He's just that talented. To paraphrase Ethridge Knight: Making jazz swing in one hundred words AIN’T no square writer’s job."

- Rion Amilcar Scott, award-winning author of Insurrections and The World Doesn't Require You


100-word stories. Drabbles. Short short stories. Whatever you call them, they pack quite a powerful punch for such a small size.


In Keep It 100, Ran Walker explores a variety of different genres and themes, from stories inspired by classic literature to stories that tackle current events. Done with the mind of a novelist and the heart of a poet, this collection is sure to resonate far beyond its compact form.
