Flash Worlds

16 Aug

At times like these, a little transcendence is in order. We asked you to take us to strange new worlds, and you didn’t disappoint. The ten stories you’ll find below are bleak and beautiful, grotesque and glistening. They transport us to other dimensions, drag us into the sea, push us to the brink of extinction, and discover strange new realms within the familiar walls of home. 

These ten stories will appear in our 2017 Prize Winners Anthology print issue, which is due out in the fall. And details for our next quarterly contest (horror-themed as always in the fall) will be released within a few days.

Until then, lose yourself in Flash Worlds.

Where we’re going we don’t need roads.
