So last week I finally started catching up on my Daily Science Fiction email backlog… (If you like flash fiction, then you might want to check out Daily Science Fiction, purveyors of, yes, daily flash fic delivered online or via email, and yours for the stunning price of free!)
Which I mainly mention as the lead in to some flash fic recs!
And, lo! A Listicle! Here are some of the ones I particularly loved…
A Heart, An Egg, A Lock of Hair by Kelly M Sandoval – a modern love story with echoes of the folktales where sorcerers hide their heart in improbable places.
A Thousand Times Over by Tamoha Sengupta – mermaids!
Wendy, Darling by A.C. Wise – a look at Wendy full grown and what it takes to protect your daughter from Peter Pan.
Of Puddings and Prophecies by Helen French – two friends in a prophecy competition where interpretation is everything.
Last To Know by Leanne A. Styles – aliens and family secrets.
Go check ’em out and have a bounce around the DSF site for more free fic!
