View Full Version : What is your favorite flash to read?

06-08-2014, 02:31 AM
I am always on the lookout for flash fiction I like. I have read a few collections in the past year, and I think I AM HOLDING YOUR HAND by Myfanwy Collins has been my favorite. When Amelia Gray publishes flash, I always seem to like it too.

Also, Wigleaf just posted their favorite stories from the past year. They don't hyperlilnk to the stories, but most are online. I'm still going through them.

You might or might not consider these as flash fiction, but I do.

I'm enthralled recently by David Shumate's prose poetry (http://www.amazon.com/David-Shumate/e/B001JSBEOS) . It's more like flash fiction then poetry. He has three collections out and they are all wonderful.

Also Stuart Dybek is a master - The Coast of Chicago and Ecstatic Cahoots (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=ntt_athr_dp_sr_1?_encoding=UTF8&field-author=Stuart%20Dybek&search-alias=books&sort=relevancerank)
(Nighthawks in the first and The Swing in the second are incredible)

Nin Andrews - prose poetry - Southern Voices and others.

Lydia Davis - Collected Stories and Can't and Won't (http://www.amazon.com/Lydia-Davis/e/B001I9U6EW)

One of the best sci-fi stories ever counts as flash fiction: They're Made Out of Meat (http://www.terrybisson.com/page6/page6.html)

I also really liked this one: Flowers for Clockwork Street (https://everydayfiction.com/flowers-for-clockwork-street-by-jennifer-r-fierro/)
