June’s Table of Contents

editorial by Camille Gooderham Campbell

From the Editors

For some reason, there seems to be… well, rather a lot of death in the stories we’ve selected this month. I do apologize to anyone who finds this a bit grim; it’s just that many of the best submissions we got involved death, one way or another. Sometimes this happens—a glut of some particular theme, some character type, some genre or setting—you’d almost think there’d been a writing prompt triggering it out there…

Having said that, is it weird to now say I hope you enjoy the stories we have for you this month?

For Readers

For Father’s Day on June 21st, we’re featuring “A Cigarette for Lester” by Christopher Owen.

For Writers

During the past few weeks, we’ve had some staff changes. We were sorry to see slush reader Michael Boettcher leave our team, and we hope you’ll join us in wishing him safe travels as he serves his country abroad. Lisa Finch and Melissa Reynolds have been promoted to editorial assistants, and we’re consequently looking to fill some slush reader openings.

Over at Flash Fiction Chronicles, we’re happy to welcome new managing editor Michael Mattson to carry on the work begun by Gay Degani and then Jim Harrington.

We’re currently looking for stories for July and August; that includes Canada Day, Independence Day, Bastille Day, and any summer stories you’d like to send us.

And now, here’s what you can look forward to over the course of this month…
