Receiving this year's Flash Fiction Annual, themed Innovation caused me to notice that I never reviewed last year's, which I read, um, last year? It feels like a decade ago. Back when we could travel. I read this on trains and in transit lounges. Flash fiction is perfect for that sort of setting. You can have the satisfying finishing of a story without worrying that you'll be sucked in and miss your boarding call or station.

I don't remember many individual stories at this point -- there are ove

My story is one of those included here.

But I'd give the collection 5 stars anyway because I truly enjoyed reading it. Flash fictions are great for. busy life--you can read one or two when you have a few free minutes. But they're really hard to write well, so I admire the talents of the authors here. I also really liked the diversity of ways authors interpreted the theme.

My story "Not How We Planned It" is in this book and I'm all the more proud of that after reading all the stories. I was honestly surprised by the quality. In only 300 words or less, all of these entries manage to tell complete and appealing stories, and it doesn't get boring to read 120 of them because the takes on the theme are so different. I had several "wow, that's so original!" and "wow, I wish I had come up with that" moments.

Migration is a delightful collection of widely varied bite-sized stories. Reading it, I felt like I was consuming many types of tasty morsels that can be appreciated by so many different palates.

I like how many creative ways different authors interpreted the theme. Many subgenres of speculative fiction are represented as well, including clever blending of genres.

Just as importantly (to me, as a queer person with many queer loved ones), the queer identities of characters range across the spectra

A thrilling collection of flash fiction tales all told arlond the theme of migration. From sci fi to a fantasy to the absurd, over a hundred up and coming and established authors take a crack at telling their story in a flash.

A brilliant book, a great way to find some new authors, and another wonderful flash fiction anthology from the Queer Sci Fi crew.

Good collection of micro stories. I think I liked this set better than last year's (Impact), and I more often agreed with the judge's picks.

Disclosure: I have a story in here under a different name.
