The shorter the better with flash fiction. In the second half of this collection, I found several that were far more successful, in my opinion, than most of what came before. Some I really liked. Nash finally removed that detachment which had lost me and prevented me from engaging in many of his other stories. He also found his edge--providing sharper endings--and became more precise.
As I wrote in a review for another collection of flash fiction, I do believe there may be disagreement about what is good and what is skilled in flash fiction. But the important factor is for the story to grab the reader---and to do it quickly. Sadly most of these stories did not do so for me. Those that did grab me, did their job well (Crowd Sauced, In Triplicate, Laundry Lists, Confirmament, Disbanded, Zombie). All in all, though these are outweighed in a collection of 50 stories.
