The Flash Fiction Online 2015 Anthology is up and kicking.
Whether you’re a longtime flash fiction reader or a writer yourself, this collection is sure to contain a story for everyone.
With over thirty stories originally published in our virtual pages and some of our favorites reprints from across the genre spectrum, we’re proud to bring you our latest collection edited by Suzanne W. Vincent.
From John Guzlowski’s literary gem “The Last Man on Earth – A Mini-Novel,” to Laura Pearlman’s humorous Reddit takeover in “I Am Graalnak of the Vroon Empire, Supreme Overlord of the Planet Earth. Ask Me Anything,” you never know where the next story will take you.
But I could read the stories online for free, you say. Why would I want to pay money for the same thing?
Because art has value.
We here at Flash Fiction Online do what we do, wading through thousands of stories to curate collections like our Anthologies, completely unpaid–only because we love reading and writing short fiction, and we believe art has to be nurtured.
So why give Flash Fiction Online my money?
Because we pass on that value to the creators. We pay our authors and illustrators professional rates.
There are plenty of magazines and publications who ask authors to give away their stories “for the love of…” But not us. We pay the professional rates established by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA). It’s part of what attracts the high-caliber writers we publish. If we didn’t pay them, they’d take their stories elsewhere–and we wouldn’t blame them.
We believe an author’s work has value, and we hope you do as well.
So if you do, and you must, because you’re here reading this, then find a way to drop a few dollars in our communal tip jar. There are plenty of other ways besides buying a copy of our Anthology.
Become a Patron and we’ll send you rewards every month including professional manuscript critiques by our editorial staff.
Or subscribe to Flash Fiction Online every month, so you never miss an issue.
But since you’re here, go ahead and grab your copy of our 2015 Anthology.
Let us know which story is your favorite. Which delights you, makes you cry, hits that sore spot you try to hide. We want to know.
That is, after all, the point of a good story.
