The #FridayFlash Report – Vol 3 Number 35

January 29, 2012 in FridayFlash Report by Tim VanSant

We have 48 stories in the Collector this week with 5 Debuts. Please welcome Luke Wortley, Fernando H. Stevens, Sonya Clark, Leonard White, and Nerine Dorman to the community. With the new options on the Collector we have 6 stories marked as being part of a series and 2 that have audio narration. The stories this week fall under 11 different genres. A fourth of them are Slice of Life, but Fantasy, Horror, and Magical Realism are also well-represented. As always, if your story is not in the listing below please go to the Collector and add the details. It will be in next week’s listing.

I love the fact that this is a truly global community of writers. Most of our stories this week are out of the United States (25) and United Kingdom (14), but we also have three stories from Australia, two from Canada, and one each from Bulgaria, Germany, South Africa, and Taiwan. If we don’t reach to the four corners of the globe, we come darn close. That’s because you are all so quick to welcome new writers and you encourage people to join in the fun. Keep that up!
