One again friends, we find ourselves scouring the fictional waters for those rogue waves that rise and up and impress us with the power of their writing. Or, in other words, I’ve posted my favorite flash fiction of the week below. Please give them a good read!
- Filler, by Anthony Abboreno, at American Short Fiction. I have to admit, I wasn’t sure what to make of this at first but then the ending really elevated the whole story. Nicely done.
- No Country for Old Miley: Cormac McCarthy Describes the Video for We Can’t Stop, by Celeste Ballard at the Hairpin. I love Cormac McCarthy, and this is a pretty hilarious riff on his style.
- The Lilac Tree, by Marion Husband, at Goodreads. Fantastic detail and flashback structure. A really well-drawn character.
