The June 2020 Issue of Flash Fiction Online. Fantasy, science fiction, horror, and literary short fiction for the modern reader.

Now on to this month’s stories.

We often take for granted that adults offer a wide array of personalities and personal foibles.  But I think sometimes we see children as one of two types —slugs and snails and puppy dog tails versus sugar and spice and everything nice.  But children are much more complex than that.  They come to this world precharged with certain tendencies and traits that combine with relationships and experiences that slowly mold them into the adults they will become.
This month’s three original stories offer three young protagonists, each distinct individuals, and each influenced in unique ways by the people in their lives.

“I Am NOT Little Red Riding Hood” by S.L. Saboviec

“Señor Garcia’s Cold Heart” by David Urbina

“Matches, Tower, Sister, Stone” by Lora Gray

“Auntie Cheeks” by Renée Jessica Tan

Plus a new writing column from Jason S. Ridler.

We hope you love them as much as we do.
