A Girl's Guide to Fly Fishing: Reflex Fiction Volume 3


"A Girl’s Guide to Fly Fishing contains 158 flash fictions from 139 writers from across the world. These short short stories, each no longer than 360 words, were longlisted for the four rounds of the Reflex flash fiction competition held in 2019... A Girl’s Guide to Fly Fishing showcases the versatility of flash fiction. From the traditional narrative to the experimental, each of these page-long stories packs a punch greater than its word count suggests."

Barely Casting a Shadow: Reflex Fiction Volume 1


"Barely Casting a Shadow includes 161 stories from 138 of the best flash fiction writers in the world, all long-listed for the first four rounds of the Reflex Fiction flash fiction competition. You’ll find four winning stories: Anger Management by Charmaine Wilkerson, Jimmy Choo Shoes by Shannon Savvas, Fly Away Home by Helen Rye, and our inaugural winner, and the story that gives this anthology its name, Barely Casting a Shadow by Alicia Bakewell. You’ll find humour, sadness, love, and lots of ladybirds. Whatever your reading tastes, there’ll be something here for you."

Nothing Short Of: Selected Tales from 100 Word Story


"What can a hundred words do? They can send chills, they can bring you to tears, they can take your breath away. In often racy, always charged encounters--from wild messy breakups to a disgruntled clown dinner to quiet revelations over folded laundry--these 100-word stories take us to lightning moments when everything, big and small, is at stake. In NOTHING SHORT OF, a hundred words is all you need."

The Lobsters Run Free: Bath Flash Fiction Volume Two


"One hundred and thirty-five flash fiction stories from world-wide authors selected from the long lists of the three Bath Flash Fiction Awards in 2017. These dazzling fictions, all 300 words or under, give us fresh insights into world wide concerns--from relationship issues and domestic situations tender or fraught, to war torn landscapes and the plight of the dispossessed. So much is compressed into so few words. So much will linger after reading."
