Flash Fiction chosen by Mark Anderson
This flash piece does a fantastic job of taking a normal, human experience (having a baby) and altering it in new and hauntingly unexpected ways.
‘An Egg’ demonstrates the power of flash as a viable form for historical fiction. Despite the ominous backdrop, this piece is a kaleidoscope for the senses. Read the author’s note for the extra punch.
“Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.” by Lucas Church via Booth
I love this flash piece for its mix of absurd, intellectual comedy and lucid, moving moments of clarity. Unpredictability at the sentence level like this is pure delight.
The strength of this piece of flash (historical) fiction is its narrow, intimate focus. I love how integral the title is. Without the title hovering overhead, this story would read completely differently.
