Pre-sale for Forward: 21st Century Flash Fiction

Earlier this year, we announced the first volume of Forward: 21st Century Flash Fiction, a new anthology of flash fiction edited by Megan Giddings, and we’re so proud to open the pre-sale and show off the cover! With art by Anuj Shrestha, and design by Jon Cameron, you’ll definitely want to order this handsome volume for your shelf!

Check out Forward‘s Substack newsletter for an interview with Anuj about his artwork and the cover (facilitated by Forward‘s own Bix Gabriel), and don’t forget to subscribe for updates from our contributors, editors, and collaborators.

In the spirit of the holiday season, we want to express our deep gratitude to all the donors who have supported Forward so far—if you’d like to donate, you can keep us moving full-steam toward the anthology’s release!
