Summary

From Scout Media comes A Flash of Words 2: The Games, the seventh volume in an ongoing short story anthology series featuring authors from all over the world, and the second in which the stories are exclusively flash-fiction pieces.
 
 
 
In this installation, no limits were set on genre; however, the authors had to incorporate a game into the plotline, from chess, to hide and seek, to Monopoly, to poker, and even Super Mario Bros. Within these moments of competition and not always good sportsmanship, these flash-fiction length stories will warm your heart, send shivers down your spine, and tickle your funny bone.
 
 
 
Whether to be enlightened, entertained, or momentarily immersed in another world, these selections convey the true spirit of flash fiction.

    Funny and adventurous short fiction by a well-established poet with a devoted following. The first and only collection of Ruefle’s fiction. This book has strong potential to tap into the widespread audience for literary fiction. (It’s a bit like George Saunders meets James Tate.) Stories have appeared in a number of popular and literary magazines, including Harper’s, Sentence, and Triquarterly. Ruefle was featured in the McSweeney’s Book of Poets Picking Poets; this book is a good opportunity to expand Mary’s readership to fans of flash fiction and McSweeney’s readers. Her poetry collections are very popular in libraries and bookstores with an academic connection. Ruefle teaches at the Univeristy of Iowa and the University of Vermont.
