    a) the-phone-book.com is a one year old, server based publishing organisation that commissions international new works of ultra-short fiction for quarterly distribution by wireless and traditional internet. We take the technical limitations of the format and turn them into a challenge for our writers. Our longest stories are 150 words and our shortest, 150 characters. Because of our desire to publish quality content we pay professional rates while charging our readers nothing.
