Flash Fiction Online for October 2012 has stories by Bryan McNabb and Lani Carroll and a classic from Franz Kafka.Flash Fiction Online is a website with very short stories, updated every month. These are reviews for their October 2012 issue.
First up is "Zombie March" by Bryan McNabb. When Amber Riley's husband comes home a zombie, she sends him on his way, holding her shotgun in front of her. The next day, someone else drops by and she does the same. This starts a mass-movement in of the stranger zombie tales.
The other original story is "Mid-Autumn Moon" by Lani Carroll. Foxes have taken little girl's dolls for a picnic under the Mid-Autumn Moon. The dolls are enchanted, at first, but the foxes have ulterior motives. A wonderfully quirky tale.
The Classic Flash story is by "A Fratricide" by Franz Kafka. It's an account of a brutal murder, written as only a master can.
