The May 2017 issue of Flash Fiction Online.Fantasy, science fiction, horror, and literary short fiction for the modern reader. Our stories this month all meditate on the theme of transformation in one way or another. ”The Peculiar Grace of Bees” by Jennifer Johnson is a story of breaking, of rebuilding, and of healing. ”The Machine of the Devil” by Maria Haskins is about the transformative power of words and memory in even the darkest places. And there is no larger transformation that humans experience than the transformation from living to dead–unless you count the transformation of a whole lot of people from living to dead. ”The Stars That Fall” by Samantha Murray and ”Waiting for the Floor OR The Bathers” by Natalia Theodoridou (originally published in Litro) each give us their own take on the apocalypse—as doom falling from the sky or as a rising, inescapable flood. Guest editorial by Hannah Vincent Lambert. Edited by Suzanne W. Vincent. Enjoy!
