    Love a bit of flash fiction When it s executed well it astounds me what can be achieved in so few words It s a real art This is the second NFFD collection and there is some gems to be found The best one of the collection for me is the winner of the micro fiction comp so even brief than flash Its fucking stunning for something that s barely a hundred words or so.
