Flash Fiction Online is a website with very short stories, updated every month. These are reviews for the new stories in their June 2017 issue.
The first new story is "Water Like Air" by Lora Gray. -+- Tom misses his wife, Meredith, who has died. He has difficulty breathing. But, Elodia rises from the deep waters to help him. A poignant, touching tale.
The second new story is "Touching Strangers" by C.E. Aylett. -+- An older couple are refugees from their native land on a crowded ship. The crossing is difficult, but they acquire something along the way. Effectively told little tale.
The third new story is "Owning the Dragon" by Frances Pauli. -+- Our narrator finds that a dragon can be difficult. Strange.
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).
