Gay Degani, over at Flash Fiction Chronicles, wanted to put together a list of 100 great flash fiction stories in honor of National Short Story Month in May. Instead of the 100 she was looking for, she got 134.

I suggested three of the stories on the list, all really killer examples of the form. It was a very cool idea and a terrific effort of Gay’s part. Go check it out: 134 Short Story Links in Honor of Short Story Month 2012.

And yes, chances are good that we missed naming a gaggle of awesome flash. I got shy about submitting too many names, or else you’d also see David Maizenberg on the list, and Jonis Agee, and Ron Carlson, and yt sumner, so on, and so on. But now that the list is out there — and already longer than 100 — feel free to drop more names and titles into the comments!
