I was very impressed with the range and quality of flash fiction I found out there this week. It’s really an exciting time to be a reader (and writer)! Let’s get to my favorites this week.
- He, She, by Akis Papantonis, at Vestal Review. A nice, punchy history of a complicated relationship in a few sentences. A great example of the form.
- Punch Drunk, by Jon Prior, at the Puffin Review. This story really gathers some fine momentum and weight as it gets going. Love the emotion at the end.
- No Past, No Future, by Lauren Greenwood. You don’t see stories like this very often these days. I like the “modern fable” vibe Lauren’s created.
- The Vector, by Jay Hosking at Little Fiction. It’s a longer piece but a very interesting premise with great tone. A short story page-turner, if you will.
