Product Description

Stories that won’t waste your time.

This enthralling anthology of flash fiction features very short stories ranging from a paragraph to one or two pages. Flash Fiction Magazine has compiled a sterling collection of exceptional contemporary examples of this unique fictional form covering a wide range of ideas and genres, from literary to romantic to humorous to horrifying.

Exploring the last moments before a death, the heartache of unrequited love, the sweet high of revenge, or the sad truth about human obsolescence, these brief tales touch briefly but profoundly on who we are, the ways we commit, the ways we move on, the ways we get by—sometimes shocking, sometimes funny, sometimes deeply emotional, and always remarkable.

Format: Kindle Edition
I received a review copy of Flash Fiction Issue 1 which has a collection of 50 stories packed into 93 pages. Each of the fifty authors has condensed an insight in human experience into a short sharp tale. The result is a book that is hard to put down until you find there is no more.

Of course I found some stories more rewarding and intriguing than others. However, I would particularly recommend "Moving a Desk" a sad story about the end of a relationship, "Some Subjects I'm Good At, Other Not So Much" a classic short story with a twist, "Shattered" a story of disappointment, "The Alabaster Princess" a story of attraction and a search for confirmation,"He" a life in 3 paragraphs, "La Gioconda" another great story with a twist, and "What's Her name" a story of memory, good and nor so good with which this aging reviewer can identify.

These flash fiction books are a lot of fun! Read the rant about texting and driving, written by text on the freeway. Or the delayed romance about the perfect man who told her to come back in 5 years. If it was me, I would want to know what he'd been up to for five years! There's so much you don't know in flash fiction, but when its done right you know just enough. Quick reads for short breaks.

As a writer, I know how difficult short fiction is to write. As a reader, I was amazed at the quality and calibre of the stories in Flash Fiction Magazine. There was such a diverse range of stories, from a diverse range of authors. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them and look forward to the next collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent short stories book 3 March 2017
By D. Wong - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am very grateful that my friend intrroduced this book to me. It brought me back to simpler times back when I read short stories while growing up. I really enjoyed lots of stories in this book, the Phone Number by Marcio Saito is particularly great, I suppose it is because I can relate to the story at my age, the "what ifs" of life... even as I am truly grateful for all I got in my life.

Another good thing about short stories is that I can read the book in my leisure time, they are independent and not a collection of threads to be read over days, weeks, or many books, it is much simpler times.

Like other reviewers, I also searched for a common theme in the book. There are stories about stress and anxiety caused by technology, aging, fear of dying, the fantastic, silly stories that made me laugh, and touching stories that made me teary. To me, what is common in the book is the humanity, the ability to say so much with few words, and the desire to tell a good story. To all the talented and aspiring writers in the book, my best wishes, and hope you will keep writing for the benefit of us readers. In my opinion, even J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series got better in her later books, so keep writing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Collection 19 March 2017
By Kenny A. Chaffin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great Stuff! The fifty stories here include both Flash and Microfictions both of which I love. Some I had read on-line such as Anvils from the Sky by Matt Handle which had me astounded and rolling in the floor! It's a toss up for my favorite, both sentimental stories - Aiden's Flowers by Lee-Ann Khoh and Tastes Like Grappa by Evan Sheldon (the final story in the book - well placed to encourage future purchases ;)
Other favorites include:
Don't Text and Drive by Angela Trevino
Chaos by A. B. Morrison
The Appointment by Daniel Pereyra
Living in the Now by J. Hardy Carroll
Phone Number by Marcio Saito
The Garden of Saints by Jennifer Dillard

Really no bad stories here at all as there are in some collections.
Buy it! Enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique and quirky collection of flash fiction. 1 March 2017
By J. Landwehr - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a fun collection of both short, short flash pieces and longer stories. The pieces run the gamut from those with a religious bent like Garden of Saints, to dark humor stories like Untimely Demise, to romantic dramas like Phone Number - all standouts in my opinion. A couple of my other favorites are the shorts like Living in the Now, a dark piece that is arresting and packs a (literal) punch, and Curtain Call that beautifully describes a plane crash and its sad outcome in just a few paragraphs. Way too many good tales to cover in a single review, but there is certainly something for every fiction lover in this collection, for sure.

Disclaimer: I was given an advanced copy of this publication in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Eclectic Grab Bag 9 March 2017
By T. Palmer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I picked this up while it was free, looking for some bite-sized writing to fill those spare moments between work and chores and life. No such luck. I devoured the book in a single day. The stories are varied, with a range of styles and topics. All of them were well-written, even those ones that weren't to my personal taste. I think amongst my favorites were Aiden's Flowers; Crane; From Roger, With Love; Anvils From the Sky; Chaos; Exit Interview; Operator; and Tastes Like Grappa.

I would highly recommend picking up this little gem and look forward to future volumes.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great place to whet your appetite for Flash Fiction 2 March 2017
By CT D'Alessandro - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First of all, I want to say that I enjoyed this anthology very much. I found the voices new, some even masterful. This is not a bad thing - it means that new authors are given a chance to spread their wings and find an audience. Most stories tend towards literary fiction, though there is some speculative fiction, prose poetry, romance and borderline horror. There is really something for everyone in this collection. Multiple themes and types are represented here, which allows the collection to do what flash fiction should do, which is to surprise, entice and capture the reader in a moment - or series of moments in time, to encapsulate a mood, voice or even an entire narrative. I kept coming back to this book over and over with the expectation that I would be delighted by some new discovery. If you are venturing into the genre, this is a great place to start!

Some favorites included:

From Roger with Love
The Pretty Roses
Don't Text and Drive
Curtain Call
Authentic Flavor
Restrained (creepy!)
Operator (my favorite opening sentence)
Tastes Like Grappa
