Flash Fiction is a blast! There are 72 wonderfully brief pieces here. This anthology allows for many writers to publish things that just won't appear anywhere else. Something that could be just a throwaway idea can be scribbled out in a few short sentences, paragraphs, or pages.

It's daunting to review a book with 75 authors. I would like to give some general remarks. The shortest story has 185 words ('Water' by Fred Leebron). I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 because very short stories are not really my cup of tea. I need time to get a grip on the story and the characters and this is difficult for me with a very short story. There are also a few stories included by foreign writers like Roland Topor, Heinrich Boll and Julio Cortazar. It's a little bit surprising that Sam Shepard is not included. Though he's mainly a playwright, he has some outstanding very short stories. This collection comes in handy when you like to read something in bed before you go to sleep.
