Congratulations to Rich Young, the winner of the April 2014 Flim-Flam Game for his flash fiction story “The Scraping.”
In all, it was a good game last month. We had some really strong submissions. Kicking off the month was “Bad Seed” by Doreen Knight, a wicked tale about the planting of a human seed, a dead body seed. And you’ll never guess what happens next.
Following Doreen’s fabulous tale was “Mars in the Holiday Season” by Anthony McColgan, a funny take on David Bowie.
Jennifer Ann Margaret Patino killed it with “The Beast.” Her story takes some unexpected turns and delivers on a surprise ending that will take your breath away.
RK Musgrave wrapped up the month with “The Guest,” a fine way to end the cruelest month.
The themes for the month of May include:
