Guest Editor’s Note: Setu Flash Fiction April, 2019

 My love of short stories developed when I was a child. My father had an amazing and creative
mind. He would create scavenger hunts for my sister and me and when each new clue was
revealed, it added to a story only his beautiful mind could create. When I was bored, rather than
telling me to go outside and play, he would sit down with a pencil and notebook and we would
create a story together. Sometimes it would be about aliens and far away worlds, others would be
about adventures on frozen lakes and in dense woods. I was 9 years old when I began to
appreciate reading and writing even more and wanted to create vivid stories for others to read.
 Today, even all these years later, the quest for writing vivid short stories is ever present. A
short story can tell a complete and engaging tale even with a limited number of words. A well
written short story should enable the reader to envision the events as if they are watching it play
out before their eye. Characters so real, the reader believes they may have once met or can see
themselves in someone else’s shoes. Stories so well orchestrated the reader is transported to
another land and desires to know more.

 I present to you a fantastic collection of Flash Fiction Short Stories from all across the globe.
Tales of wonder and tales of woe. Tales that will always leave you wanting more.
