Flash Fiction chosen by Jon Sindell.
“60 Feet” by Robert Scotellaro via Postcard Shorts
A master of micro fiction, Robert Scotellaro encloses a world in a nutshell. This particular nutshell is bullet hard.
A flash story is special if it has heart, rich language, and evocative imagery. This one has all of that (one memorable image: the narrator feeling the undertow of cars speeding past, like a riptide). And the imagery serves the effect of the story.
“ 4th And State, 9:05 a.m.” by Townsend Walker via Word Riot
Concision is essential to flash, and Townsend Walker doesn’t waste words. His style is hard and direct. And, in this case, dark and funny.
This story is a marvel of artistic originality and authorial vision. I’ve never read another like it.
