Jen Wylie & Sean Hayden
Flashy Fiction and Other Insane Tales 2

Another anthology of the strange, bizarre, and just plain weird.

Another great anthology from these two authors. A quick and easy read, you'll be able to pick this book up anytime, even if you only have ten minutes. Thoroughly enjoyable, no matter what your favourite genre is there will be something you will like.

My favourite in this anthology is definitely The Zombie Dialogues, and I would love this story to go further, would definitely keep me entertained. What did this book teach me? Never catch fireflies in jars, teddy bears (esp. robotic ones) are scary, and I always knew unicorns had a dark side.

After Ms. Wylie and Mr. Hayden's successfully Flashy Fiction 1, they decided to do a second one. I really enjoyed the first one, and was very glad for a chance to read and review the second. In this installment several stories have something in common, such as Firefiles by Ms. Wylie and Security by Mr. Hayden. They both involve fireflies and the paranormal, but they are vastly different tales. Some don't have counterpart stories, like Shadow of Innocence is the only unicorn story. Some of the stories are longer, some shorter but all quite well written and entertaining. A few are rather horrific and some are tear jerkers.

My favorites are Fireflies and Security and Shadow of Innocence. I love fireflies and these stories are intriguing and twisted takes on the little bugs. I'm a sucker for badass unicorn stories and Shadow of Innocence satiates that desire perfectly.

I highly recommend this collection to lovers of twisted, dark fantasy of all sorts and lovers of short stories.

This time around, there were a couple stories where the authors decided to pick a topic and both write a story around it. The first was fireflies. Fireflies by Jen Wylie surrounds the magic you feel when catching fireflies. Security by Sean Hayden is about how catching fireflies can have grave consequences. These stories are both a little weird, but in vastly different ways. Just a Bear by Jen Wylie is about how sinister or safe a stuffed bear can be, and really made me appreciate the old stuffed animals that reside in my closet. Mr. McClunkin by Sean Hayden is a steampunk story (which I'm not usually very fond of) and walks a delicate balance between heartwarming and scary. It's really neat to see how both can take a subject and go in vastly different directions.

There were several stories revolving around zombies. The Zombie Apocalypse, Blue Moon, and Duck Hunting by Jen Wylie all have an undead aspect. The first is a new take on how it could happen; the second is about a deliciously vengeful witch, and the third is what happens when a writer is woken up from her beauty sleep by duck hunting season. The Zombie Dialogues is the only zombie related story that Sean Hayden contributed, and it was freaking hilarious. I would love to see more of the two characters he showed us.

Pumpkin Carver, GTMV-219, Bubba Fangs, and In Hell are Sean Hayden's other stories.

Originally posted here:[...]

Flashy Fiction is a very original anthology, with several very short stories which go from paranormal to horror; there are lots of different creatures: vampires, zombies and other weird characters like unicorns and teddy bears. The thing I liked about these stories is that there are always two on the same topic. The anthology has been written by two authors and they challenged each other to write a story on the same subject, but often the stories turned out in completely different ways!

Some of the stories are pretty dark, others a little bit lighter and there are some mysterious and creepy. Among my favorites there are Fireflies, Pumpkin carver and Little devil, maybe not the creepiest, but by far the ones that hold a very deep meaning; especially Pumpkin carver, which obviously takes place during Halloween, a very sad and sweet story about a father and his love for his sons. All the stories are fun in their own way; there are killer teddy bears (I will never look at teddy bears in the same way), unicorns standing up for themselves and fighting their sad fate, Walmart people turning into vampires and all kind of zombies. Some stories made me laugh, some others made me wonder and others made me feel that... chill down the spine that you usually get when you read an horror story in the middle of the night at home alone (note to self: don't ever do that again).

Another thing I like were the comments at the end of every story. Short and funny, they explained how the story was born or its meaning. It was like having a peek 'behind the curtains', to see how a book is created and they were also very helpful to understand some of the most cryptic stories.

Overall, I have to admit that this anthology was pretty nice.
