A 300-word story should be easy, right? Many of our entrants say it’s the hardest
thing they’ve ever written.
Queer Sci Fi’s Annual Flash Fiction Contest challenges authors to write a complete
LGBTQ speculative fiction micro-story on a specific theme. “Flight” leaves much for
the authors to interpret: winged creatures, flight and space vehicles, or fleeing
from dire circumstances.
Some astonishing stories were submitted, from horrific, bloodcurdling pieces to
sweet, contemplative ones—and all LGBTQ speculative fiction. The stories in this anthology include AIs and angels, winged lions and wayward aliens. Smart, snappy
slice of life pieces written for entertainment or for social commentary. Join us for
brief and often surprising trips into 110 speculative fiction authors’ minds.
The book us available in eBook form (4.99), and will soon be available in paperback
with b/w illustrations inside (12.99) and in a special collector’s edition with
color illustrations (24.99).
