A Fresh Start
Welcome to January! New year, new staff. Welcome to Lucy Davidson, Sheena Boekweg, Lydia Ondrusek, and Alexandra Dey.
This month we're welcoming back Tom Crosshill with a finely balanced tale of the ridiculous taken seriously — “To Fly a Pig in the Dorseny Sky.” And from Jennifer Linnaea, a beautiful fantasy story of compassion and sacrifice — “Sea Ink.” Finally, from Patrick Dey, a science fiction about an “AI Robot.”
And for our Classic Flash, Anton Chekhov provides a glimpse at absurdity — someone's idea of “Bliss.”
Thanks for joining us! As usual, please tip the authors of the stories you like, and we’ll see you in February!

About the Author
Suzanne Vincent — an old fat lady from the heart of Mormondom — ekes out a little spare time to crank out the occasional interesting story, usually with a somewhat deranged bent, but softened by an undercurrent of spirituality. She writes about her interests, which range far and wide: history, "low" fantasy, really good psychological horror, tattoos, Indonesian puppets, fortune cookies, mirrors, and a particular soft spot for old and/or unfamiliar fairy tales, myths, and legends. A 2005 graduate of Orson Scott Card’s Literary Boot Camp, she regrets not having begun her study of the writing craft while in her youth. "I Speak the Master’s Will" was featured in the first issue of Flash Fiction Online, and "The Cleansing" appeared in November 2008. She has also been previously published at anotherealm.com, and her story “Strange Love” was published in audio form at Drabblecast.
