Dark Flash based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I've read some of Maria Haskins poetry and flash fiction in the past. because I've enjoyed it, I decided to give a collection of her flash fiction a read. I'm happy to have done so. As with most flash fiction, it can be a hit and miss. Length is a major factor that shapes each story and what can be done within the limited word count. Haskins has more hits than misses, in my opinion. Not every story wowed me, but many did. She's able to work a lot of "story" into each story, keep the pace fast without making them feel short, and come up with a variety of ideas that also work together nicely. I'll definitely continue to read Haskins' work. Especially the flash fiction. Having finished Dark flash, I'm now also curious what Haskins can do with a longer form, whether it's short stories or novels.
