Keret & Stick
Thinking about mini-fictions yesterday brought Etgar Keret to mind, who, I think, is one of the best short short story writers around. I could try to tell you the little I know about him, but instead I googled and found a whole bunch of his work online. I suggest you start with the funny/bleak "Phenomenal Hard-Ons", though the site it's on may not be work-safe. Keret isn't a full time purveyor of filth, however, and if you go to his own site you'll find links to other stories.
