Welcome to our ongoing Flash Fiction Sunday Edition.
If you are new here, we do this every Sunday.
We also publish 101 word Flash Fiction every day. We even deliver:
Flash Fiction chosen by Jim Landwehr
At the height of summer, and firefly season this story resonated with me because it took me to that yard, that night. The ending caught me off guard and is perfect.
Stitches as centipedes put in by a sadistic madman with a staple gun provides some great imagery for this encounter in the trauma center. All this and a beautiful, hopeful ending to go along with it.
“Germs” by D.P. Southwell via First Stop Fiction
This one has the feel of an old Creepshow skit. In its brevity, it explores the life and death of a germophobe.
“Prepared” by Chris Ceravolo via Word Riot
If you’re one who has trouble at the ordering line, you’ll want to read this story. It starts so real and goes sideways into a fast food hell, of sorts.
