Review: Flash Fiction Online, January 2018

Flash Fiction Online, January 2018

Original Fiction:

  • “The Solid Years of My Life” by Holly Collingwood (science fiction short story)
  • “Mother’s Rules for a Burned Girl” by Rebecca Mix (fantasy short story)

Ice and fire. Aside from a reprint and a mainstream story, this month’s Flash Fiction Online includes a story about an experiment in cryo going wrong which will leave all but the newest SF readers, uh, bored stiff, and a story about playing with dragons and getting burned, but not in the way Mother tells you. This latter is the more interesting of the two because, despite a familiar topic of repression and a conventional structure, it deploys its imagery unusually and holds firm to its flame.
