Because We Felt Like It
WELCOME TO OUR FIRST SEMI-WHENEVER-WE-FEEL-LIKE-IT FFO CLASSICS ISSUE!
After some serious reminiscing, we decided we’d like to share with you some of our staff favorites from past issues, along with a bit of our actual reminiscences on why we love these stories. The hard part, you should know, was narrowing it down to these few, which means a Second Semi-Whenever-We-Feel-Like-It FFO Classics Issue is likely to happen. Sometime. When we feel like it.

Suzanne Vincent is the editor-in-chief of Flash Fiction Online. That’s what people think anyway. Actually, she’s really a pretty ordinary middle-aged woman packing a few extra pounds and a few more gray hairs than she’s comfortable with. As a writer, she leans toward the fantasy spectrum, though much of what she writes is difficult to classify. Slipstream? Isn’t that where we stick stories when we just can’t figure out where else they go? Suzanne’s first professional publication was right here at FFO, published before she joined the staff: “I Speak the Master’s Will,” — a story she’s still very proud of. While she doesn’t actually have time to blog anymore, she once did. You can still read her ancient posts on writing at The Slushpile Avalanche. Suzanne keeps a house full of kids (3), a husband (1), and pets (too many to number) in Utah, USA. Yes, she’s a Mormon. No, there isn’t another wife. Mormons haven’t actually practiced polygamy since the 1890s. Too bad. She’d love to have another woman around to wash dishes and do laundry.
