    I only liked this 4 stars worth because 1) There are a variety of genres included in this collection, some I normally read, some I don't, and 2) It was frustrating to me that each story in the collection was over just when felt like it was getting started. However, I'm thinking of recommending it to my wife, the middle school language arts teacher because it seems like a great tool for starting discussions or essays. "What happens next?" "What happened before the story started?" etc. I will be re I only liked this 4 stars worth because 1) There are a variety of genres included in this collection, some I normally read, some I don't, and 2) It was frustrating to me that each story in the collection was over just when felt like it was getting started.

    As the title states, this is a multi-genre anthology of science fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, romance, and literary flash fiction. However, the romance and literary categories only had one fiction each. Even though they’re all so very short, I found this collection of works to be very well-written and well-compiled. It was a highly enjoyable read for me, though a lot of times I felt somewhat disappointed.

It was a highly enjoyable read for me, though a lot of times I felt somewhat disappointed. There are some that seem to end rather abruptly, leaving me confused and/or unsatisfied with what I’ve read. On the other hand, there were others that immediately captivated me in its storyline and left me wanting more from the author to see how that particular story can be fleshed out and progressed into a lengthier piece of work. My favorite thing overall about this was how all these authors were able to create such fleshed out storylines for something so short! It takes some real ingenuity and talent, I feel, in order to convey that and so successfully in almost every case. Additionally, there were many completely unique ideas and concepts that I’ve never seen or heard of in all forms of media, and it really makes me think of all the possibilities we could have, especially when it came to the science-fiction category. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the authors of this collection come out with in the future, and I’m extremely excited to read the other two Flash Flood collections.

    I was turned onto this collection by one of the contributors, a fellow forum poster and author of a published novel (so one more than me!) This is a free collection and can be found at all major ebook sites. The idea behind it is simple--offer a bunch of very short (3-4 page) stories from a raft of authors to allow the reader to quickly sample their styles. The hope is the reader will enjoy at least some of what they read and seek out more work from the same authors.

The hope is the reader will enjoy at least some of what they read and seek out more work from the same authors. It's a good idea and, I think, a successful one. The stories cover a range of genres so there's bound to be something to interest any reader (though romance and literary only have a single entry each) and each story is short enough that there is minimal investment. Even if a story outright stinks (and none in this collection do) it's only a few minutes of reading before you move on. At the same time it's difficult to pull out highlights because a lot of the stories trade on twist endings, are more sketches than stories, or skip nuance because there's only four freaking pages to say everything. And the horror section in particular is a bit disappointing in being so zombie-heavy. At least it's not wall-to-wall vampires. But there is a lot of entertaining stuff here and I will indeed be seeking out work by some of the authors. The collection is free, it's a quick read and it's a handy introduction to a lot of indie authors worthy of your time. Recommended.

    Some crazy stuff!! Lol I admit, at first I was confused reading the first several stories in the book. I'm not sure if I was tired or if a better introduction would have explained the abrupt endings of some of these short stories? But I initially felt a bit bewildered, as if a door had been slammed in my face just as I started to get into each of the short pieces. As I settled into reading, which did take a little bit, I started to get it, and then I was hooked. Not only that, but I was feeling a Some crazy stuff!!

As I settled into reading, which did take a little bit, I started to get it, and then I was hooked. Not only that, but I was feeling a bit devilish and grinning or cackling like a fool when I reached those sometimes odd and jarring endings. I wanted more if each story. I've subscribed to every author in the anthology. I also can't wait to get going on the next book. This was a gem!

    Although I normally review/rate each book that I read I will not be rating anthologies. This will allow me the freedom to just read the stories that are clean (the only ones I am willing to read) in an anthology and skip/ignore the rest. The only way that I will rate an anthology is if all of the authors have verified that the stories included in the anthology are free of sex, swearing and graphic violence. I will sometimes still make notes about the stories as you can see below: "I Shouldn't Have Although I normally review/rate each book that I read I will not be rating anthologies.

The only way that I will rate an anthology is if all of the authors have verified that the stories included in the anthology are free of sex, swearing and graphic violence. I will sometimes still make notes about the stories as you can see below: "I Shouldn't Have Eaten the Space Crab" by Phronk - skipped story due to the swearing/bad language "The Price" by Adan Ramie - wish I had skipped it by the time I was done reading; felt yucky after reading it as it was about a person trapped in prostitution and the hopelessness of never being able to get out or break the cycle (and probably not even for her children) "Raven 9" by George Donnelly - Not sure what happened in this story. I never figured out who the characters actually were. "A Report to the Commissioner" by Griffin Carmichael - a crew's mission encounters delay after delay resulting in all of the officers going through gender shifts so there are no longer officers available to lead the mission; not exactly sure what the point of the story is - why can't officers lead a mission because they now have families or are in the family way? "No Rest for the Reannotated" by George Saoulidis - Weird but some people will like it. Bringing smart people back to life to brainstorm and solve some big problem. No foul language; lots of big science words. "Shutdown Triggers" by K. D. McAdams- interesting story about a "person" who relies on technology to function/live almost shutting down. "Slamming on the Brakes" by Michael Barbato-Dunn- Finally! A story that I like! Teenager abducted by aliens just before he turns 16 and just before he gets his learner's permit. Instead he learns to drive/fly in an alien space ship. Read the story for the full details and see if you like it too. "Problem solving" by Tom Germann - I don't understand the motive behind the crime in this story. Not sure what I am missing but definitely missing some key detail. "Doubleplusunhate" by George Donnelly - The "newspeak" was a little hard to understand but once I figured it out the story was good. "The Silent Princess" by Emily Martha Sorensen- humorous twist on "The Princess and the Frog" fairy tale. "Octopus" by Karen Diem - a little bit of foul language; I like the sassy superhero Zita though. "A Question of Blood" by Raquel Lyon - paranormal sex (maybe he is a vampire?) - another one I wish I had not read but it was so short (3 pages) that the deed was done before I realized what was happening "A Father's Mercy" by J.T. Williams - a father and daughter elf - don't like this story, not a happy ending "Dark Dealings" by Tricia Owens - the bartering of a trading card. Does it contain black magic or not? Story made me smile even though it contained a little bit of swearing. "Death or Eternity" by Lynda Belle - vampire sex "Blood of Harrodarr" by J.T. Williams - swearing and dying in the little bit I read; skipping the rest; not an author for me based on the two stories in this collection "Hair of the Dog" by Connie B. Dowell - Dog-owner sees an amazing site on his corgie-cam and rushes home to find ... "Surge" by Brian Manning - Will employee be able to save company VP from the bad guys? Liked this short good guy/bad guys battle story "The Weeds Within the Rulership" by Emily Martha Sorensen - in this story each flower means something and there is a little courtship going on plus learning about magic and how to use (or not use it since it is illegal for most people to use it in this world) "The First Dragon Charmer" by JC Kang - a young woman goes to try and charm a dragon "Murder in the Neighborhood" by Jamie Campbell - was someone murdered or not? I did not read the stories in the Horror or the Romance categories.

    I love anthologies of short stories - it gives you a taste of an author or a genre that can suck you into a wonderful black hole of reading. I like that this book has the works split up by genre. I like that each author gets a blurb after their story to draw you in to read more of their works. I really liked that there was only one story from the romance genre. The only thing I disliked (and this may be personal preference) is that I felt like they front-loaded this book.

I was roped in immediately by amazing short stories but then disappointed as they slowly dropped in quality. By the time I was done reading, I was glad it was over.

    This is a collection of stories that are each only a few pages long, which is a difficult format to tell a story well. While most of this collection was subpar, there were several stories in the scifi and horror sections that were quite good. The two mystery stories featured were fantastic; I wish that section has been much longer. Overall, not an awful collection for a free kindle book that is able to be read in short sections over time.

    It was okay. Some stories were good, others were average. There was one that I skipped through, but I don't remember the name of it. Still, not an awful read. I like anthologies like this so I can come across new authors that I normally wouldn't. It was okay. Some stories were good, others were average.

    Many indie stories. The stories are quick reads of course, suitable for the thinking seat. The one I enjoyed the most was the George Donnelly take on George Orwell 's 1984. Many indie stories.

    Think it's permafree, but found it either through one of my free book sites or by looking through what J.T. Williams had to offer in his stories. No idea what date originally reviewed on amazon because the bloody review didn't take. Noticed it was missing review when went to check some books reviewed a while back some time late november.
