Fiction. "If you'd rather be rapt for a moment reading a flash than strung out for pages in a novel, FAST FORWARD is for you. It's the best flash fiction around--a book full of raptures"--Robert Shapard, editor of Flash Fiction Forward and Sudden Fiction series. Fast Forward Press strives to deliver diverse anthologies of international flash fiction by established and emerging writers. The stories range from under 100 words to 1,000 words, each one a self-contained emotional experience. In THE MIX TAPE, the third in the series, masters of the genre--Linh Dinh and Barbara Henning--are mingle with talented newcomers--Bryan Jansing and Teresa Milbrodt. The resulting book has all the pleasures of listening to a good mix tape: flashes of poetry, deep solemn undercurrents, and the laughable and the ludicrous. THE MIX TAPE is pure musical pleasure without the tape-hiss.

A dazzling new anthology of the very best very short fiction from around the world. What is a flash fiction called in other countries? In Latin America it is a micro, in Denmark kortprosa, in Bulgaria mikro razkaz. These short shorts, usually no more than 750 words, range from linear narratives to the more unusual: stories based on mathematical forms, a paragraph-length novel, a scientific report on volcanic fireflies that proliferate in nightclubs. Flash has always—and everywhere—been a form of experiment, of possibility. A new entry in the lauded Flash and Sudden Fiction anthologies, this collection includes 86 of the most beautiful, provocative, and moving narratives by authors from six continents, including best-selling writer Etgar Keret, Zimbabwean writer Petina Gappah, Korean screenwriter Kim Young-ha, Nobel Prize winner Czeslaw Milosz, and Argentinian “Queen of the Microstory” Ana María Shua, among many others. These brilliantly chosen stories challenge readers to widen their vision and celebrate both the local and the universal.
