Format: Paperback
Flush Fiction is a collection of flash fiction--er, "flush" fiction--perfect for those short visits to the "privatarium." Some of the stories have appeared in other publications or submitted in literary contests and are noted accordingly. Like any collection of short stories, not every entry will appeal to every reader, but I think most readers will enjoy this collection and perhaps find a few personal gems. Some stories mad me laugh out loud (The Taste of Failure and Two Urinals from Death are my favorites), some made me frown and scratch my head, one made me think I'd slipped into the Twilight Zone (cue Rod Serling!) and a few I just didn't get, but that's the way it goes with collections like these.

One bit of advice given to writers tells you to start your story with a strong hook. "Vita 1985" starts with one of these: "Once I quit crack, I had to get out of the CIA." Now, if that doesn't make you want to read further, then go ahead and pass on this collection. Otherwise, if you're looking for the perfect toilet tank book, this collection and any others in the BRI library are perfect for you.

Format: Paperback
A play on "flash fiction"--ultra short stories usually around 1000 words or less--Flush Fiction is an anthology meant for bathroom reading. And sure, some of them are pretty crappy (sorry, couldn't resist) but some of them are quite good. I especially liked "One Million Years B.F.E.: Diary of an Anthropologist in Exile," by Merrie Haskell, about an anthropologist sent back in time as punishment.

I have every single Bathroom Reader except those written for children. I love all but two of them. This being one. Bathroom Reader stepped into an area where they don't belong. This is a poor man's O'Henry or Saki. Very predictable twists in the plot. I guess my having been an English teacher for nearly 40 years makes me somewhat cynical about such an amateurish attempt. But the OTHER Readers. They are wonderful!
