RESULTS – Microcosms 54

Thank you to everyone who submitted a story to Microcosms 54. We had 17 entries this week – although one seemed to be a response to contest 48… [ Apologies for introducing a genre – ‘Aga Saga’ – that may be familar only to UK entrants, and perhaps not all of them! ] Please keep returning to Microcosms, and retweet…

RESULTS – Microcosms 47

Thank you to everyone who took the time to invent a better mousetrap in Microcosms 47; in an ideal universe, the world would be making a beaten path to the door of each and every one of you for more fine flash fiction. We had an extremely respectable 19 entries in all – plus a very late entry…

RESULTS – Microcosms 40

Thank you to all who,  in Microcosms 40, submitted their take on one of the favourite/favorite lines from the previous 13 weeks of the contest. A huge leap in the number of entries this week; does this mean that people prefer the freedom allowed by not having the slot machine of elements? It would be good…

Microcosms 36

Welcome back, flash-fictioneers, to your hebdomadal fix of Microcosms. What delights await you? In my teenage years, my reading matter was almost exclusively sci-fi.
