I'm late announcing this, but in case you haven't seen it yet, SmokeLong Quarterly has added a reviews section to their already stellar journal. The purpose of this addition is to promote excellent flash fiction on the web, or as editor Dave Clapper says:
"Recently, The Angler reviewed two flashes, one of which had appeared in SmokeLong. Soon after, a blog called On Life as a Sarcastic Fringhead took the time to review every piece in our thirteenth issue, and Steven J. McDermott soon followed suit with several mini-reviews (and he'd also earlier reviewed two other pieces from SLQ). We thought this was a great service to writers and we decided that we wanted to further the mission of calling attention to great writing. With that in mind, we hope to present one new review each week of a flash that has appeared in another publication. We'll also do our best to post links to reviews of SLQ that have appeared elsewhere in hopes that we can repay them, if ever so slightly, in traffic. We hope you enjoy the stories we highlight here."
Dave Clapper has begun with a review of "Blood," a story by Elizabeth Ellen and Steven Gullion reviews "After My Nephew Reads My Poem About the Cow Who Got Stuck in a Tree," by Carla Panciera.
