FlashSpec Volume One was first released in July 2006 as an experiment in flash, speculative fiction. The number of submissions we received and the
overall response to the very first edition was truly amazing!
The carefully selected collection of stories includes works from Simon Haynes, Paul Sheringham, Stephanie Campisi, Mark Smith, Julia Felicity Ker and Stephen Jones, to name
just a few, with each easy-to-read story less than a thousand words long!
From spine-tingling horror and spellbinding fantasy to creative and humorous science fiction, Volume One offers a fascinating and entertaining sampling of original
speculative fiction from a raft of international authors.
From The Editor
"I was first introduced to flash fiction when I stumbled across the term during an Internet search of writing-related sites.
Fearing that the word flash may be leading me to a site one would never publicly admit to visiting, I was pleasantly surprised (and somewhat relieved) to find myself at
the home of aurealisXpress, a monthly, electronic newsletter for subscribers of Aurealis Magazine.
