Seven years and 140 some stories after its creation, Flash Fiction Online, under the direction of publisher Anna Yeatts and Editor in Chief Suzanne W. Vincent, is proud to offer you—the frenetic 21st century reader—our first annual anthology. More than thirty stories ranging from Cislyn Smith's "The Secret Lives of Sea Monsters", a haunting testament to hidden strangers beneath our very noses, to Eli Hasting's heartbreaking story of a young man's incarceration after his best friend's death in "The Cell I'm In". Both professional and upcoming authors in both genre and literary fiction appeared in our issues this year. Enjoy stories from Caroline M. Yoachim, Brynn MacNab, Mary C. Moore, Nathaniel Lee, Kelly Sandoval, and more.
