The writers of the Crazy Buffet Club have collectively created this fifth edition of short stories. They are an eclectic group with people of different ages, experiences, genres, and word counts. You will find that these stories reflect the differences just as the collection reflects our common love of writing. Each year we publish this collection and donate all royalties to the Young Southern Student Writers sponsored by the Southern Lit Alliance and the Department of English at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. This year the collection has some writers from the first edition of the Crazy Buffet Club collection, writers who have contributed to later ones, and first time contributors.
