My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a collection of twenty two scifi stories, most around 1000 words long. Enjoy tales of time travel, dystopian futures, apocalypse, aliens, genetic engineering, and much more…
Genre: Flash fiction; Science fiction
Zach sipped his coffee as he shuffled along down the corridor, squinting against the rising artificial sun. The transition from night to morning was merely a courtesy on the ship. Zach assumed it was to keep all aboard from having psychotic breaks. Though he had never seen a real sunrise with his own eyes, he could remember it well, and knew that it occurred less abruptly. He could vaguely recall the swatches of pinks and purples that colored the early mornings, ending with glorious oranges and blues.
This book comprises a broad variety of flash fiction stories. These stories entertain you, make you wonder, nod, shake your head, and/or even touch you. I will not tell you more about the stories than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.
With 22 Short Scifi Stories, Angela Cavanaugh has created a varied collection of 22 flash fiction stories. 22 Short Scifi Stories is an entertaining collection, its stories are fast reads, not only enjoyable for flash fiction and/or scifi fans. If you like unusual stories and sometimes surprising (and still very suitable) endings, and/or like The Twilight Zone – this collection is also for you. Some stories took me by surprise, some stories touched me, some stories made me gawk.
About the author
At the age of 27, Angela moved to Los Angeles. Originally from St. Louis, she had spent several years in Austin; so much time focused on – and under the control of – someone else. She had lost herself completely. California changed all of that. She made new friends, and found an amazing man who supported all her dreams and helped her become a self-actualized person.
Two years later, and she finally knew what happiness was. It fulled her every day, allowing her to create stories and worlds, and put herself out there.
