Introduction to a flash fiction Personal Anthology

There must be a name for those of us who constantly force-feed friends with short stories that they simply must read, but whatever we are called, here is my list. Just twelve, albeit with the sneaky side hustle that they come from on-line magazines which will introduce you to more. And then some more. We have a wealth of excellent online literary magazines and sites now (like this one), often run by writers who are just doing it for the pure love of the written word. So this list is also a thank you to the editors, readers, and amazing people who keep this strange form thriving. I’ve picked very short stories here, because it’s increasingly what I write and so I know exactly how hard it is to do well. But these are also stories that play on the page – with forms, genres and words. Enjoy.
