Dribs and Drabbles Flash Fiction

Dribs and Drabbles is my second collection of short stories. They are (mostly) fantastical flash fiction and come in a variety of lengths. Six word stories, ten word stories and “twiterature”, stories of up to 280 characters. From drabbles (100 word stories) to stories up to 1,500 words. The collection is arranged in order of length.

There is some argument about the length criteria for flash fiction but it’s normally up to 1,000 or 1,500. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_fiction A popular form of flash fiction is the ‘drabble’, 100 word stories that originated with UK science fiction fandom in the 1980s according to Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drabble I have lots of drabbles in my collection.

The stories themselves are mainly fantasy stories. However, the three longest stories are science fiction. The two longest are alternate versions of fairy tales. One, “Red and the Alien Wolf” is a version of Red Riding Hood (surprise!) and the longest one, “Snow and the Alien Queen” is (you’ve guessed it!) an alternate version of Snow White.
