Friday Flash Fiction

Over on his blog, Gareth L Powell came up with the idea of posting a short story every Friday. Friday Flash Fiction has already been adopted by:

  • Paul Raven
  • Martin McGrath
  • Neil Beynon


  • I thought I'd join in too. The four drabbles I've written this week are unlikely to find a place in the very limited drabble market, so here's the first installment:


    The Gondolier
    By Gareth D Jones

    This story now appears in the Illuminations anthology.

    I liked this - it's mellow and the "twist" isn't too dramatic, just natural.
