Spark, Black Ship’s first anthology of flash fiction, is now available on Amazon.
Bringing together 34 flash fiction stories from 14 authors, SPARK offers a host of stories to thrill, move, and challenge fans of short-short fiction. A woman physically at war with her mother’s legacy inside her own body, a young girl given a vision of a utopic past at the end of the world, a man psychically bonded to the living weapon for which he is the failsafe, a harem of “female” androids newly capable of questioning their subservient status—these are a few of the characters you’ll meet on a flash fiction tour stretching from the mundane to the transcendent, from suburban homes and public parks to a desolate world light-years from Earth. The stories in SPARK transcend the boundaries of genre and strain at the limits of their diminutive word count. The stories may be short, but the mental fires they will ignite are anything but small.
Spark was co-edited by Evan Henry and Joyce Juzwik, and published in partnership with Flash Fiction Friday.
