These are few in my tens of pieces of flash fiction, but I deem these my very best flash fiction stories, each between 55 and 1000 words. Most of these have been written during a Flash Fiction Month (FFM for short).
A story from early FFM 2018, Fish, Ribbons and Sherbet Ice Cream is a story about a man trying to find out who actually killed his little sister. This involves summoning a fish demon to help him connect with his late sister’s spirit. This story was published in The Ruminations of a Multiheaded Monster.
A story from late FFM 2018, The Janitor Gets Everywhere is a story about a janitor who is more than meets the eye. Just like this description, it holds a Transformers reference. This story was published in The Ruminations of a Multiheaded Monster.
Who let the bees in? is a short flash fiction from the middle of FFM 2018. As the name implies, it has bees indoors.
Kraken Earth, a challenge entry from FFM 2019, is mostly set on Kraken Earth, a version of Earth where humans are cryptids (that is, what krakens and yetis are to us) and krakens inhabit the planet. It also tells an interdisciplinary love story between two humans as one of them traverses to Kraken Earth, becoming a cryptid in the process. It is also an entry for Prose-ject‘s Little Prose.
Past Mistakes is another challenge entry from FFM 2019 and my second Little Prose entry of the month. After Bereth’s mentor dies in combat, he must fulfil her final wish: taking her ring and making things right. This leads him to a path he would have never expected to traverse.
Far from earth, in a story from FFM 2019, a person meets a hologram that is both familiar and unfamiliar at the same time.
A story from Prose-ject 2019, Dragon Warrior is about the love story between a proud warrior who earned the title the story is named after and her narrating beloved, the prince she guards as part of the royal guard.
