From the Editors
We hope you’re enjoying good weather and (if this is a holiday long weekend for you) any parades, barbecues, or other festivities you might have planned. Cheers!
For Canada Day (sort of, anyway) we have “It’s About a Moose?” by Townsend Walker, and for Independence Day, we have “Subdivision Smack-Down” by Mary Ann Back. Then, for Bastille Day on July 14th, we have “Bouffant” by Samantha Memi.
We’re also bringing you some nice ghost stories for summer camp-out nights, mixed in with the usual eclectic blend of genres and voices.
Do you ever wonder what makes a top story? What grabs the most reads, generates the biggest buzz, gets the highest reader votes, and so on? Barry Friesen‘s story “Hat Trick” was the top story for May 2011 at EDF — he was interviewed by Erin Kelly at Flash Fiction Chronicles last month.
Apparently July is Flash Fiction Month over at deviantART. Why not write a flash fiction piece a day with them?
Our editors are still looking for a few summer stories and we’re ready for end-of-summer, back-to-school and Labour Day pieces too.
Don’t forget, August is the last month of stories eligible for The Best of Every Day Fiction Four — if you want a chance to be included in our next anthology, better get those stories in quick! And if you’re new to EDF and don’t know about our best-of book series, you should definitely check it out.
And now, on to the stories for July…
