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.

Issue 9.12 is here to rattle a few chains.

This issue features enticing sirens, huge chompers, and an inner struggle between ferality and humanity.

Thanks to everyone who’s helped make 2018 such a great year here at Molotov, and don’t forget to check out our latest quarterly contest, Phantom Flash

Wait’ll you get a hold of Issue 9.11. 

Within these pages we’ve got dehydrated demons, peel-away faces, and milk-and-honey executions. 

Our fourth-annual print anthology will be out before year’s end, so keep an eye out for that. And our next contest, Phantom Flash, is now open to submissions. 

And now on to the good stuff…
