Flash Fiction – Shot to the Head (From the Archives)

“Don’t mind if I do,” Phevra said as she stepped over the decimated corpse of the bar owner.

Flash Fiction – Get Up (Stories on a Theme “Parent”)

“Get up,” Unle said, resting her cutlass under her son’s chin. She could feel the eyes of the crew, watching her every move. Hulan looked up at her with hate and defiance in his eyes.

Flash Fiction – Small World (Stories on a Theme “Human”)
