The rules are simple enough. Write a complete story—either sci fi, fantasy, or paranormal. Make sure it has LGBT characters and/or an LGBT vibe. And do it all with just 300 words.
The stories in this volume run the gamut, from platypus shifters to alien slug monsters, from carnival horror stories to haunting stories of ships with souls. There are little jokes, big surprises, and future prognostications.
This is an anthology of flash fiction specific stories, all with LGBTQ characters/ideas, and all with the general theme of Discovery. The publisher, Mischief Corner Books, takes what they need for expenses, and the rest goes to support the QSF website. A very worthy cause! It’s a fantastic site supporting GLBTQ sci-fi, fantasy, and horror fiction.
My own contribution is a little horror story called “Wrong.” I hope you like it 🙂
