Flash Fiction Online is a website with very short stories, updated every month. These are reviews for the new stories in their August 2016 issue.
The first new story is "The Time Cookie Wars" by Benjamin C. Kinney. -+- Sanna is frustrated that someone has stolen her milk and cookies. It is alternate Sannas from other timelines. This seriously gets out of hand. Very Amusing.
The second new story is "You Are Not a Metaphor" by Marina J. Lostetter. -+- Our narrator is addressing a "you" who has become disassociated from reality that is affecting the real world. Very interesting idea and well-handled.
The third new story is "Creation" by Sara Norja. -+- Our narrator was taken by the fairies and had forgotten his mortal name. When the Queen of the Faeries orders him to build a "palace of despair", old memories are awakened. Poignant and well-told.
