A few months back, the Queer Sci Fi group I belong to, had an open call for writers to submit a 300 word flash fic into their yearly competition. This year the theme for the competition was called, ‘Flight,’ and as expected, all stories had to contain some version of flight in whatever form the writers imagined. The story I submitted was titled ‘Purrsuasion.’ I didn’t win, but all the submitted entries, including mine, are in the book ‘Flight’, from fluffy to horror to everything you can imagine. The stories are short, but the book packed. The winning stories also each have a picture drawn for them and I’m interested in seeing how they turned out. I hope you give ‘Flight,’ a read. It will be available in ebook and paperback formats.

Here are the official details of the book from the Queer Sci Fi group:

Release Date: September 21, 2016

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 AI’s 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.

**Print books will be available. There are two versions. A B&W illustrated version will be available for $12.99. A full-color illustrated version will be available for $24.99.
