Excellent collection of flash fiction stories. As enjoyable as dipping in a box of chocolates. Eat them all at once or one at a time. Either way, well worth reading.

Eating My Words: A National Flash-Fiction Day Anthology is the third flash-fiction collection produced by the NFFD team, and is just as brilliant as the first two. Earlier this year, the call went out for stories of up to 500 words inspired by the prompt ‘the senses’, and the flash-fiction community, as always, came up trumps. There’s all sorts here: literary fiction, romance, speculative fiction, magic realism, comedy … You name it, the editors picked it. And it’s all delicious. Some of my very favourite authors are in there too. Highly recommended! 5/5

REVIEW of EATING MY WORDS

the

NATIONAL FLASH FICTION DAY ANTHOLOGY

Edited by Callum Kerr
Angela Readman
Amy McKelden

One of the beauties of an anthology of flash fiction is that it gives exposure to such a large number of different authors. It was good to see this, rather than many entries by a few authors. Furthermore, the anthology included a section of micro-fiction entries, a form requiring even more skill if a reader’s involvement is to be engaged.

I reviewed last year’s anthology, Scraps, and approached the present one with happy anticipation. I didn’t have the advantage of seeing the foreword - I only had the e-book. However, this year’s title is appealing and apt. It refers to the theme set the writers - The Senses. There was a wide variety in how this was interpreted, and a degree of variety in the quality of writing.

The opening story was totally enchanting in its reversal of perceptions of the rat. With a good arc and subtle references, Becky Tipper’s story set a promising tone for the book.

At the end of the book the winners of the micro-fiction competition displayed the economy of words against the ingenuity of concept.

In the remainder, the stories I mention pleased me particularly. Different readers will have different preferences, but those stories that feel complete in the read surely master the genre. It doesn’t have to be a surprise ending, but it does need to make sense of the beginning and/or display a clear concept.

The imagery in Tasty - a story about pornography - works well, and the conclusion is both believable and restorative. The concept of ‘unfinished stories’ in Dress Sense ensured that the issue of loss and stasis would resonate after the read.
