In This Issue
As philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “There is always some madness in love, but there is also always some reason in madness.”
So, for this month of love, we bring you something of the madness and the reason of love.
First, we're honored to be home to author Zach Shephard's first published story, “Lovestruck,” in which Cupid is not quite the darling little rosie-cheeked cherub with the beribboned bow we've come to expect.
And in his third appearance with Flash Fiction Online, KJ Kabza presents “Surface Tension,” a sweet and surreal love story in which a trash bag makes it possible for one couple to connect.
And while we're talking about love, be sure to ‘love’ us on Facebook and ‘stalk’ us on Twitter, then head over to our Flashblog to see what FFO blogger Bill Highsmith has been up to lately, and to link to a review of our January issue.

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.
