Volume 10, Issue 4

12 Jun

Dive into Issue 10.4. Where else can you find a celestial candidate, a spectral Johnny Cash, and a sexy compound fracture?

Our new quarterly contest, Wild Flash, will officially open to submissions within a few days, but you can scope out the guidelines in the meantime and get working on ideas. Our annual poetry contest, The Shadow Award, will be opening in the near future as well, so keep an eye out for that.

And now, without further ado…

As The Molotov Cocktail begins its 10th year of existence, we’ve got a few things in the hopper. Our Flash Legend contest is alive and well, so send us some flash that focuses on urban legends, folklore, or campfire stories. Our fourth volume of the Prize Winners Anthology print issue is now available. But most importantly, we’ve got three killer flash pieces in this issue.

Volume 9, Issue 13

24 Jan

Issue 9.13 is dripping with the dark and offbeat. We’ve got necrotic nuptials, a surreal Scranton, and snakes in seedy motel walls.

The Phantom Flash contest soft deadline is only a week away, so send us something weird. And Vol. 4 of the Prize Winners Anthology will soon be emerging at long last.
