The July 2017 issue of Flash Fiction Online. Fantasy, science fiction, horror, and literary short fiction for the modern reader. First, in “Elsewhere” by Meera Jhala, a woman struggles to maintain internal strength as her family is flung across the galaxy. Next, Aimee Picchi returns to FFO with a haunting love story told in musical time, “Errata to the Fugue of the Undreamable Abyss.”
Shara Concepción ties the otherworldly magic of the bruja into a coming of age story in her enchanting short story, “Brujitas.”
And in a return to FFO, Rachael K. Jones’s “The Law of the Conservation of Hair” is another painful yet beautifully told story about love won and lost. Yet this story is measured in – hair.
Jason S. Ridler’s latest installment of FXXK WRITING: Commercial Installment is not to be missed.
Cover by Dario Bijelac
