About the Author
Since its inception, Gary Fincke has been co-editor (with Meg Pokrass) of the annual anthology BEST MICROFICTION. His books have won the Flannery O'Connor Prize for Short Fiction, The Robert C. Jones Prize for Short Nonfiction Prose, and what is now the Wheeler Prize for Poetry. His latest collection of full-length stories is Nothing Falls from Nowhere (Stephen F. Austin, 2021). Besides having work chosen to appear in Best American Essays 2020 and Best Small Fictions 2020, he has recently published flash fiction at such sites as Craft, Wigleaf, Vestal Review, Atticus Review, Ghost Parachute, Pithead Chapel, New World Writing, and Flash Boulevard.
"A terrific collection of ultra-short stories--complex, thrilling, sometimes just crazy-nutball, in the best possible way! Huzzah!"
"Yes, this is how it is done. Beautiful, brooding, erotic, mysterious, idiosyncratic words shaped into thunderbolts, shocks that reveal what we didn't know we know. Words filled with promise, bewildering and enchanting us. This is flash at its best, flash now."
--Jane Ciabattari, columnist, BBC Culture, The Literary Hub
"A brilliant, moving, entertaining collection of very short stories, chosen by an editor who is himself a master storyteller. This promises to be a great series. Highly recommended."
--Robert Shapard, coeditor W.W. Norton's Flash Fiction International
"These fictions are travel guides, conversations, spell and incantations, language feasts, character studies, lab experiments. They are stories in the wildest sense of the word: stories that push and pull at boundaries, stories that move mountains and dig rivers and do it all while whispering quietly that they can."
