Flash Fiction Online is a website with very short stories, updated every month. These are reviews for their April 2015 issue.
The first story is "I Am Graalnak of the Vroon Empire, Destroyer of Galaxies, Supreme Overlord of the Planet Earth. Ask Me Anything" by Laura Pearlman. -+- The eponymous alien had a online conversation one year ago. Very funny.
The second story is "The Kiss" by K.C. Norton. -+- Our narrator does not want to kiss her boyfriend, Harlan, because her psychic power will tell her how the relationship will end. Nice twist at the end.
The third story is "Face Time" by Matthew F. Amati. -+- Our narrator tires to deal with Mother and her false faces. Unsettling.
The fourth story, "Comet Man" by Marina J. Lostetter is a reprint, which I do not review.
By the time you read this, the May issue might be up, but the April Flash Fiction Online should still be available. Look for it as a back issue or read any older issue. Check them out and make a donation at their website (see link at the top of this review).
