Through a hole, darkly (https://www.flashesofbrilliance.org/through-hole-darkly-nathan-blake-prize-challenge/#.XWLLfOgzbb0), by Nathan Blake:


“What eats black holes?” Sophia had asked me all those years ago. Trust a biologist to be so simple minded, but that spark had led us to confront The Beast with some semblance of a plan. I floated to my control panel, my legs tangling uselessly beneath me. Or were they above me? Damn Zero-G. [...]


Baby haunts her corner (https://www.flashesofbrilliance.org/lisa-korba-alvarez-poetry-challenge/#.XWLMkegzbb0). By Lisa Korba Alvarez

reflect a century's
worth of torture. [...]


Interview with Kyle Richardson: (https://www.flashesofbrilliance.org/?p=3762&preview=true#.XWLNH-gzbb0)


When did you discover your love of writing?

His lyrical, emotional approach to writing just blew my mind wide open. From that point on, the whole idea of writing became something profound to me—and I’ve been trying to master the craft ever since. [...]

And, also have a look at Flashes' submissions tab (https://www.flashesofbrilliance.org/wf-home/submissions/#.XWLOY-gzbb0). Start writing and submitting, who knows, your submission might be the next publication :)

Loving the new Flashes! And the content is top notch. There's a lot of crap out there, and it's heartening to see this is not in that camp. Well done all :)
