Pull up a chair. The autumn weather is upon us and Issue One is here. Ten great stories for you to enjoy, all of them different and somehow all the same – pushing the flash form for all its worth. We hope you’ll enjoy the voices, the structures, the inventiveness of each story.

Thanks to all who submitted to our first issue, and to the ten writers who have allowed us to publish their work.
