The tenth issue of Flash: The International Short-Short Story Magazine is now available.
It features stories from around the world, including flashes by eminent Austrian author Josef Winkler (translated by Adrian West), Argentina’s celebrated Ana María Shua (translated by Steven J. Stewart), Britain’s brilliant David Gaffney, America’s emerging talent Robert Scotellaro, and one of South Africa’s finest poets, Kobus Moolman.
The issue’s ‘Flash Presents’ section is devoted to collections for children, featuring four stories from books in Oxford University Press’s ‘Short’ series: Maggie Pearson’s Short and Shocking! (2002), and Louise Cooper’s Short and Scary! (2002) and Short and Spooky! (2005).
‘Flash Reviews’ contains an unprecedented eight reviews of a wide range of works. Books considered include The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Writing Flash Nonfiction, Ewan Morrison’s genre-melding/bending Tales from the Mall, and Khaled Alkhamissi’s Taxi, which was first published in Egypt in 2006 and has been translated from the Arabic by Jonathan Wright.
