  • Best of Flash Fiction, March 2013 Six-worders. Lovely. I’ve touted them before. Search the SA Current blog for Don Mathis and you’ll find some excellent examples (as well as a couple of other... | 3/27/2013
  • Best of Flash Fiction, February 2013 We're all good at something (maybe I shouldn't be quite so casual or vague about that). Sometimes that something translates into another area, sometimes it... | 2/27/2013
  • Best of Flash Fiction, January 2013 As some of you may know, I'm intrigued by constraint. I love poetry and prose that construct some kind of artificial or natural rules (or boundaries) and then... | 2/6/2013
  • Best of Flash Fiction: November 2012 What I like about this story is the temporal shift. The subtle change from past to present gives the story, "Regis and Kelly," a taut depth. There is sadness... | 1/2/2013
  • Best of Flash Fiction: November 2012 The Canícula and the Bard. Who would have thought they would make such wonderful bedfellows? Perhaps a touch uncomfortable with each other, hands... | 11/28/2012
  • Best of Flash Fiction: October 2012 The fairy tale is a timeless tale. But we love to update, rearrange, reconfigure the familiar to make it new and more applicable, but the... | 10/31/2012
  • Best of Flash Fiction: September Love: it's just a fantasy. Of course I don't believe that, but so often we fall in love with fantasy and let life grind away at the difference until it opens up a... | 9/26/2012
  • Best of Flash Fiction, June 2012 So this story was written in a bar. A friend of my brother's handed it to me and shrugged. He said, "use it if you want, just don't put my name on it." There is a lot I like about this. The idea of... | 7/25/2012
  • Best of Flash Fiction, June 2012 Originally I introduced this six-worder by suggesting it had nothing to do with the Spurs' first loss of the postseason. Today I'm introducing it as Gary's admittance... | 6/27/2012
  • Best of Flash Fiction, May 2012 Allyson Whipple, author of "Eulogy," here explores the idea of relationships. The dichotomous nature of how people interrelate, especially in the inevitable... | 5/30/2012
  • Best of Flash Fiction: April 2012 (a week tardy) Sela is back with a dialogue, not just between two unidentified characters but between us and them. This amorphous non-us is all around us and must be stopped, for theirs is a culture that... | 5/2/2012
  • Best of Flash Fiction, March 2012 "7527 Meadow Lawn" by Matthew Guzman has the feel of a Chris Ware comic: silent, morose, damaged. There's sound, but even that feels muted and cold. In fact, the only real sound is... | 3/28/2012
  • Best of Flash Fiction, January 2012 Ahhhh, destitution, that sharp, tangy taste. But even those in need have the hubris of place (in this case a ZIP code). What I like most about this piece is the voice... | 1/25/2012
  • Best of Flash Fiction, December 2011 Life in chunks. Not the way we all see it all the time, but if you consider the structure of this piece with Elizabeth Kübler-Ross in mind, you may. | 12/28/2011
  • Best of Flash Fiction, November 2011 Raising children, I can imagine, is always a task. But being a child is no better (or worse). | 11/30/2011
  • Best of Flash Fiction, October 2011 This is a wonderful Barthelmesque piece about whatever you think it might be about. Tiger sharks make terrible friends (or good ones depending on how you feel about your other friends). | 10/26/2011
