August’s Table of Contents

From the Editors

It’s hard to believe that this month will bring our fourth year of publication to a close. At the end of August, we’ll have published 1463 stories over 48 months, published 3 print anthologies and started work on our fourth, and brought our past-and-present staff count to 33 (with 15 people currently active).

For Readers

We hope you’ve enjoyed our stories over the past year, and we’ve done our best to close out the year this coming month on a strong note.

If you’re looking for something more to read, have you looked at our Top Stories page lately? Have a look back at the top ten stories of the past year, and see how many of them are also on our all-time top ten list, alongside stories that have held onto a top spot for more than a year (one of those is from 2008!). Will any of the stories coming up this month make it onto those lists?

On the subject of top stories, “Mistaken” by Sarah Evans was the top story for June 2011 at EDF — she was interviewed by Erin Kelly at Flash Fiction Chronicles in July.

Happy reading to all!

For Writers

We have some staff changes again this month: editorial assistant Shelley Dayton is moving on to other things and will be greatly missed, and we’re pleased to welcome new slush readers Kip Hanson and Laurel Fuller to our team.

And now, on to the stories…
