Product Description

Flash fiction is the art of the extremely short story. Native to the intense competition of the Internet flash arenas, the Flashdogs are an international pack of flash fiction writers committed to pushing the envelope of the form.
Collected here in the first-ever Flashdogs anthology for charity, you will find one-hundred and ten stories by thirty-four writers from around the globe. Running the gamut from dark comedy to science fiction to poetry, this anthology showcases the diversity of the pack with open submissions as well as a prompted story from each writer.
In these pages you will find addicts and astronauts, dragons and demons, mothers and madmen. Charmed by magicians and haunted by ghosts, you may find yourself reading straight through supper. The Flashdogs’ stories will sweep you into a hundred universes served in small bites anyone can enjoy.
Any proceeds from the book will go to The Flashdogs' chosen children's book charity. See www.theflashdogs.com for detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Broad Picture of an Edgy Art 13 December 2014
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This anthology presents over one hundred micro-stories from a broad range of authors, spanning the genre from poetry to flash fiction with entire story arcs contained in tiny word counts. Flash fiction is a tricky art requiring that rarest of authorial traits—restraint. I was impressed by the variety and valor of the The Flashdogs. An interesting rhythm unifies this collection. Each writer had up to three short independent pieces, followed by a prompt piece, which was dependent on a photograph presented at the front of the book. I enjoyed the pieces written for the prompt; it was fascinating to see how thirty-four different imaginations reacted to one image.

Story highlights included: Witch Pegs by David Shakes, a creepy piece that chilled me to my bones; Rain Dance by Beth Deitchman, a vivid, well-told tale; The Writer’s Mill, by Casey Rose Frank, darkly funny and striking; On The Web by Jacki Donnellan, a simple yet potent piece; The Code by Rebekah Postupak, a fully realized fantasy tale; Issue P14 by Elaine Marie McKay, science fiction looking at the all-too-human tendencies of desperate parents; Glassfire by Chris Milam, an edgy look behind the curtain of addiction; and Lilies by Eric Martell, a story that explored the horrors of virulent illness.

If you’ve never read flash fiction before, Flashdogs would be a good place to start to see a spectrum of its possibilities.

Full disclosure, I am one of the authors included in this anthology. However, most of the stories included in this collection were completely new to me.
I enjoyed the variety of tales and felt like I was able to read a great many of them in a row or have a story "snack" here and there when I had less time. (Definitely an ideal format for those who are reading on the train or bus.)
While sometimes the stories feel like brief vignettes of a wider world more, often the authors in this collection have managed to pack an entire powerful story in a short amount of words. This is the exciting part about Flash Fiction and a great place to start if you are new to this genre.
If you are a fan of Stephen King or Dean Koontz there are quite a few tales here that will get under your skin. If you like seeing slivers and snapshots of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, that's in there too. There's a good amount of laughs as well. Overall this collection is a rich tapestry of worlds and ideas sure to entertain a variety of audiences.
5.0 out of 5 stars Delectable Literary Delights 18 December 2014
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Flash fiction is a genre that tests the writer's ability to tell a complete tale in a very compressed space. This anthology presents some fine examples of that art. Running the gamut from science fiction to literary to noir, this volume offers excellent stories for your approval, with the particularly haunting Witch Pegs by David Shakes, Proxy by Sinead O'Hart, and Deliver Us From Evil by Sarah Cain being real stand outs. Overall The Flashdogs Anthology delivered some delicious morsels, and it was interesting to see the way the different writers responded to one prompt. Anyone interested in the art of short fiction should give it a read.
5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend ordering Flashdogs and stocking your pantry - er 19 February 2015

If you crave fresh imagery in finger-food bites, I recommend ordering Flashdogs and stocking your pantry - er, bookshelf with it before that other tab you've got building even has a chance to load. Yes, you will need that napkin and probably a good steak knife because there are no softened-butter tales here. From Fantasy, to Suspense, Supernatural to Science Fiction, the Flashdog's first anthology is sure to please the most persnickety palate. Bon appétit!

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a fascinating mixture of stories from the weirdly realistic to the realistically weird. Highly recommended.
