firebox fiction  
In a steam locomotive, the firebox keeps the engine going. At Night Train, we define Firebox Fiction as short short stories of 1,000 words or fewer, bursting with creative fire. If you’ve read our Aesthetic, you know what we like. The challenge of Firebox Fiction is for you to give us what we like in a small container, too hot to hold onto.
