Here Are Some Stories Seth Likes

By

Every Monday I link to very short fiction I like that I hope you’ll like too:

“When we reach the street, the houses are dark, except for one—the grey one with the white trim, chain link fence, black oak tree.” — At Waccamaw, “A House Made of Stars” by Tawnysha Greene.  

“On the street the air is fifty knives of cold.  This is not Alaska.  Why did we move here?” — At Fiction Southeast, “Winter” by Aimee Bender. (via)

“Throw your ego off the bus and let it get trampled in mud.” — At Blip, “Two Stories” by Frances Lefkowitz. 

“Flood’s over, Noah! Time to dock the ark.” — At Abjective, “Hebe at the Bar” by Diana Pollin. 

And if you want more and/or are very bored at work, Dan Chaon and Ravi Mangla have a list of the 2012 top fifty flash stories at Wigleaf. This is really a spectacular list.
