You know those sketches on Saturday Night Live that go on too long? None of these stories do. The secret of comedy is timing, and Flash Fiction Funny is comic perfection.
-Wesley Stace, novelist and (as John Wesley Harding)
musician and host of NPR's Cabinet of Wonders
Tom Hazuka's Flash Fiction Funny is a delight. Comical, silly, absurd, slapstick, quirky and always fun, it tickles. Well-crafted flashes by established and up-and-coming authors find humour in a wonderful array of characters and scenarios...this endlessly surprising anthology is light-hearted but also warm-hearted... Enjoy!
-Peter Blair and Ashley Chantler, Editors, Flash:The International Short-Short Story Magazine (Chester, UK)
Gifts celebrates 20 remarkable women with Philadelphia connections - including Louisa May Alcott, Margaret Mead, Mary Cassatt, and Marian Anderson - with original art, poetry, and fiction by contemporary artists and writers from the Philadelphia area. Each of the women this volume honors, some familiar and some less well known, have changed the world through their courage to think outside the box, to go against convention, and to defy society's expectations for their gender. The stories of these women span over two centuries of local and global history.
