From the Editors
Spring has sprung, and hopefully the weather where you are is either about to improve or already starting to get nicer. Here in Vancouver, we are deep in preparations for our book launch and annual EDF author party event coming up on May 21st, and as always we’re working hard to bring you fine flash fiction every day without fail.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any April Fool stories for you this year, but you can always go back and look at “April Fool” by Matthew Strada, which we published back in 2008 — our first April Fool’s Day. No Passover stories either — we can’t publish them if writers don’t send them.
We do have a nice set of Easter pieces for your holiday weekend from April 22nd to 24th; “Transformation” by Walt Giersbach, then “Jessica and the Rabbit” by Sandra Crook, and finally “Easter Egg Hunt” by Patrick Perkins on Easter Sunday.
As an additional treat for you this month, we will also be publishing the winner of the Flash Fiction Chronicles String-of-10 Contest, “Pretending” by A.S. Andrews, on April 29th.
Flash Fiction Chronicles is pleased to announce that Michelle Reale, guest judge of the String-of-10 Contest, has now joined Gay Degani at FFC as co-editor.
