FXXK Writing Cover

The Flash Fiction Online 2016 Anthology Series

Cover of Flash Fiction Online Science Fiction Anthology 2016Releasing in January 2017, the first in our series, SCIENCE FICTION: 2016, is sure to please both the casual short fiction reader and the dedicated hard-scifi conneissuer.  Quick Sip Reviewer, Charles Payseur says of our stories, “A language of taste and a language of song and a language of touch. Ways of communicating that not only step outside the bounds of traditional discourse but need to in order to be expressed…and the stories all seek a more universal form of communication.” Including “The Time Cookie Wars” by Benjamin C. Kinney, “Quartet of the Far-Blown Wars” by Matt Dovey, “Foreign Tongues” by John Wiswell, and many more, this is collection exemplifies what flash fiction can do among the science fiction sub-genres.

Edited by Suzanne W. Vincent. Illustrations by Dario Bijelac.

Anna Yeatts

Anna Yeatts is the Publisher of Flash Fiction Online. Since Flash Fiction Online is a free magazine, she spends a great deal of time over at Patreon, trying to drum up enough money to keep a free magazine in business. But she appreciates all the readers and supporters (including the world’s most amazing staff of editors and slush readers) who make FFO a reality every month. 

Anna writes in that nebulous overlap between genre and literary works where offbeat, surreal stories are born. Her short stories appear in Cicada, Daily Science Fiction, Mslexia, Drabblecast, PodCastle, Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, and Penumbra among other publications.

When not writing, Anna wrangles two wonderful children, two matching cats, and a German Shepherd who doesn’t believe in weekends. Follow her at or on YouTube.
