Flash Point SF 33

About

Do you love science fiction and fantasy? Us too, but as much as we enjoy the sprawling epics for which our genre is famous (read: infamous), we think there should be more space for the short stuff. Stories you can knock out over your morning coffee, or during your lunch break. Stories you don’t need a bookmark for. So, why Flash Point SF? Because we know there are a lot of wonderful science fiction and fantasy flash stories being written, but the market to publish them is incredibly small. That’s where we come in. Our goal is to provide SF&F flash authors with a new venue to publish their work.
