Migration feaures 300 word speculative flash fiction stories from across the rainbow spectrum, from the minds of the writers of Queer Sci Fi.
Each year, hundreds of writers send in stories for the Queer Sci Fi flash fiction anthology. Here are the opening lines from my story in this anthology:
“The wound was fatal. Their vessel wouldn’t live much longer. This is what came from leaving loose ends. Frantically they sought out a new vessel to migrate to. “ —The Essence, by L.M. Brown
My story was also chosen as a Judge’s Choice this year and here is what Amir had to say about it.
“This was an amazing story. Right from the first sentence, I was hooked. The world-building was as clear as you can get in 300 words. The main character has a defined personality, and they took on a very unique spin on the concept of migration. One of the things I loved about this story is that the main character is morally ambiguous. Through the story, you’re not sure whether the MC is good or bad, but you can feel that they’re desperate enough that you almost start to root for them. Until the end. It was a really well-written story that stuck with me.”
