Flash Fiction Online is a website with very short stories, updated every month. These are reviews for the new stories in their May 2017 issue.
The first new story is "The Machine of the Devil" by Maria Haskins. -+- Jacob cannot remember the word that will transform into a bird and let him escape a place that sounds all too familiar. He finds a way. Poignant and touching.
The second new story is "The Peculiar Grace of Bees" by J.R. Johnson. -+- A wall is missing and our main character must find a way to restore it. OK.
The third new story is "The Stars that Fall" by Samantha Murray. -+- Our narrator searches the sky for her doom and finds it with her name on it. Wonderfully bizarre.
By the time you read this, next month's issue might be up, but this month's 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).
