Flash fiction is, in my opinion, the next frontier in writing. With the world moving along at a breakneck pace, fewer and fewer people have time to read longer works, which some would argue is leading to a decrease in overall reading. Not true. People read more now than they ever have before: the internet is made for reading. That's why I started 365tomorrows: to make fiction for the internet generation.
Definitions of flash-fiction vary depending on who you ask, and at 365, we've been a little loose with the term. However, it's time to set some standards in stone: here, flash fiction is a self-contained story under 600 words. We like science fiction in all its incarnations, from hard scifi to cyberpunk and beyond.
