Flash Fiction chosen by Mark Dennis Anderson
“Eggnog” by Adam Janos via Word Riot
This flash fiction story aptly shows how voice and description can weave together to create an original and strange mood. The lasting image from the final moment of this humorously and disturbingly erotic scene is one that I’ll carry with me for awhile.
This flash piece is best described in the author’s own words: ‘There may be a difference between flash fiction and prose poems, but I believe the researchers still haven’t found the genes that differentiate them.’
What I love about this flash fiction piece is its lively and rebellious energy despite the dark and ominous setup. A story like this would make a perfect writing prompt.
Only in flash fiction can one get away with a story like this, capturing a vivid scene both internally and externally while effortlessly stringing the reader along until the very last sentence.
