So Much Flash…

Reading these flash fiction stories will be more fun than falling into a supernova! Really! It’s not a high bar!

At the end of 2016, we had big plans for publishing a lot of flash fiction this year.  Well, we have good news and bad news…  Obviously, it’s September, and we haven’t published a lot this year.  However, that’s because the stories we were going to publish have instead been picked up by other markets — many of them by Daily Science Fiction!

So, instead of offering all of these stories directly, we’ve decided to post a round-up of links to where you can read them elsewhere online.  These are all tasty little bites of sf/f, so when you need a snack of a few moments spent in another universe, here you go…
