shortstorymonth320x320Flash fiction obviously works on the less is more principle—relying on being suggestive rather than exhaustive in its descriptions of characters, plots, etc. “Hiding” by Frances Badgett—the tale of a young girl struggling to keep a box secreted away from her father’s girlfriend—doesn’t entirely explain the relationships and the motives at its core, but what’s there is more than enough to keep the reader both intrigued and emotionally invested in the narrator’s troubled situation. — Art Taylor
