Summer’s a busy time, especially if you’ve bought your first first house, moved, thrown three consecutive birthday parties and gone for a 10-day at the cottage…. but there is always time for flash fiction! Here’s a review of a handful of them over at Apex Magazine.

My enthusiasm for these stories sometimes doesn’t come through as strongly as I’d like, but I swear to you, the three stories I analyzed this week all made me VERY enthusiastic! One of these days I will write some reviews with a lot more hyperbole and exclamation marks – I will.

Anyway, read my reviews this week at Apex Magazine, and then read the stories! Or the other way around, if you choose. You won’t regret it!
