Flash Fiction Online is a website with very short stories, updated every month. These are reviews for the new stories in their July 2017 issue.
The first new story is "Brujitas" by Shara Concepción. -+- Our narrators encounter a witch and show her some magic of their own. Very literary!
The second new story is "Elsewhere" by Meera Jhala. -+- The air of Delhi became unbreathable when she was a teenager. The woman called Mrs. Bhatia managed to send her son, Vivek, to safety. What can she do for herself? Poignant.
The third new story is "Errata to the Fugue of the Undreamable Abyss" by Aimee Picchi. -+- In a series of notes, our narrator tells us about the end-of-life for her lover, the composer of the eponymous musical composition. Beautiful.
