Surprise — Flash Fiction Word Anthology #3 includes my story “Elevator”

4 Feb

This is nice. Just got an email telling me that my story Elevator is the Flash Fiction World Anthology #3.

The story is even mentioned in the product description:

Flash Fiction World (FFW) proudly presents its third collection of high quality flash fiction and short stories written by authors from around the world, including amateur, professional and award winning authors. Each story has been selected for its high level of quality in terms of writing skill and pure reading enjoyment. There are seventy stories of up to 1000 words, in all genres, for the reader to enjoy.This substantial book is for lovers of flash fiction and short stories – tales that provoke thought, stimulate emotion, and generally impact on the reader’s body and soul. If your taste is for fiction that leans more to the commercial side, with fast-driven plots and action all the way you won’t be disappointed. At the same time many of our stories are literary in style. They deal with the inner conflicts, fears and dramas that weave themselves into the web of life on this planet.Here are some examples of the captivating stories awaiting you: Playing God by Jacqueline Leahy presents the dysfunctional (to say the least) relationship between a mother and son. How does a child cope with a psychopathic mother? In The God Particle by Neil Fulwood, a code-cracker breaks a mysterious code – with horrendous results. Mike Monson’s Elevator is a story about a woman in her company’s elevator/lift. The only other occupant is a male colleague. She doesn’t know him. He knows her though, and she is about to wish he didn’t.Flash Fiction World – Volume 3 is packed with stories about all the ups and downs, and ins and outs of life. Whatever your preference you will find plenty of reading material (over 38,000 words) in these pages to keep you engrossed and leave you fulfilled. I guarantee that you will enjoy a fiction feast and will be seeking more stories by many of the writers that you discover in these pages.

I like that because only a couple out of the 70 flash pieces were written up in this description.
