I’ve created a new “News and Headlines” section of the Web site to handle press releases and other interesting items that are external to Flash Fiction Online — and maybe external to our current time, too. We’ll see. This blog will continue to be used for Flash Fiction Online-related information. Make sense? News and Headlines […]
If you like classic cartoons, go to Unicorn Media and search on “Betty Boop” or “Felix the Cat”. A press release this morning said that they’re going to be publishing these and other classic videos on the Web, and it looks like at least some of them are up.
I know that a fair number of people here are fond of speculative fiction, and although it may not be fiction, I thought this press release might amuse or edify: Bigfoot Hunters Heading to Catskill, New York to Investigate Several Sightings of a Family of Bigfoot, June 26-June 28, 2008Expedition to Be Open to Journalists […]
I’m recovering from a hard drive crash, so please forgive any tardiness in correspondence. I have all of my data, but a lot of applications needed to be reinstalled. I’m almost out of the woods, finally.
In the FlashForum, I just opened a discussion on non-traditional publishing. You’re welcome to join the conversation.
We’ve solidified the line-up for July, and I couldn’t be happier.

It would be like playing favorites with his kids.) You can […]

If you’d like people to take a look at what you’re writing and provide some feedback, it’s a place to go. Note that, because it’s on a password protected […]
Sam Tomaino over at SFRevu just reviewed our May issue. I’m happy to say that every story got a “Very Good”. Thanks, Sam!
I recently put some information about our editorial practices in the Flash Forum. I put it there instead of on a separate page to encourage people to ask questions, complain, make suggestions, offer to be a part of the team, and so on. Generally speaking, I like transparency in the editorial process. When things aren’t […]
I just found a great site called Five Star Literary Stories, run by three-time Pushcart nominee T.J. Forrester. I don’t suppose it’s shocking, with a name like that and an editor with those credentials, that it focuses on literary fiction (as opposed to science fiction, thrillers, etc.). It might be especially beneficial if you don’t […]
