When you’re looking for a quick, hot read, nothing hits the spot quite like erotic flash fiction. It gets to the point fast, but even though it’s short, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t reach all those important little places. Dirty Flash Fiction, published by Sexy Little Pages, is a short, short anthology produced by the team calling themselves The Kinky Brits – Jillian Boyd, Charlie J. Forrest, Zak Jane Keir and Anna Sky – and the seven stories in the collection showcase the various things flash fiction does so well. From Charlie J. Forrest’s Gluttony, a depiction of lust and desire that makes its point in a mere handful of paragraphs, to Jillian Boyd’s haunting paranormal tale, Becoming, there’s something to fit every erotic moment. Zak Jane Keir provides both full-on filth (we’d expect nothing less) in the bukkake-themed The Big Five Oh, and a weird speculative mood piece, Even After All. Things are rounded out nicely with Forrest’s saucy Sign Of The Hunted, featuring that classic staple of flash fiction, the twist ending, and Anna Sky’s two stories, Chastised, which offers an intense MM CP scenario, and a bit of deliciously shame-laced female submission courtesy of Intangible Assets.
Hopefully this will be the first in a series – there’s certainly an appetite for authors to write flash and readers to devour it – and it proves that Sexy Little Pages is one of the up-and-coming imprints who intend to try something a little different from the erotic romance norm.
