Flashy Fiction AND OTHER INSANE TALES VOL 1 & 2
To the quiet ones, the trodden on, the kids in the hall
The wolves in sheep's clothing, fooling them all.
To the Goth, the dark, and the utterly strange
The bizarre, the mutants, and the strangely deranged
To the clinically insane and those not yet diagnosed
Even un-medicated, you understand us the most
This Flashy combo's for you
An anthology of the strange, bizarre, and just plain weird. In Volume 1 find Zombies, vampires, ghosts, and ...crickets? If you dare, keep reading Volume 2 for Unicorns, zombies, devils, dark whispers, teddy bears, and ...fireflies? Try a taste of writing from two very different fantasy authors. Flash fiction stories are super short and perfect for when you 'just have a minute'. These anthologies each contain 15 stories (both flash and longer short stories) from authors Sean Hayden and Jen Wylie. Run the rampart of emotions in this exciting mix of tales. From humor to horror, sweet to twisted, there is something for everyone.
Sean Hayden's writing style has a horror/adventure vibe to it, while Jen Wylie's style is more fantasy driven. But they accomplished their goal and now I want to read more from both authors, so I will have to check out more of their other work.
There were a few stories that could be considered short stories, and those in particular made me wish the pieces were longer.
I devoured this anthology in one sitting, but it is more for when you have a few spare minutes to read something short.
It was well-done, and earns four Platypires.
