Velouria is a seminal collection of microfiction. Daren Shiau, better known as a novelist and a poet, experimented with flash fiction in between lengthier works in the mid-200os. The title story of the book is named after a track by Boston-based alternative rock band, the Pixies. Other stories in the volume were titled after the songs by artistes such as My Bloody Valentine and Thelonious Monk. This 2017 reprint contains a new story "Sedimentary", which received the top prize in The Straits Times' inaugural microfiction competition in 2007.
