Publisher's Summary

Get your weird and fun fix with these super-short stories of the strange. From ghosts to galactic guests and everything in the gaps. Riddled with riddles, tons of twists and turns, plenty of pulp, and some truly tender moments. Listen to them all or pick and choose which ones to listen by genre.

Flashing Lights: Short and Weird is a collection of sixteen flash fiction and short stories in several subgenres of speculative fiction. The collection includes aliens and ghosts, portals through time and space, plenty of humor, a bit of horror and suspense, and some serious classic sci-fi. Embark on a mission to explore the breadth of speculative short fiction. Each story is preceded by a content rating (G, PG, PG-13) and its genre tags. And is followed by an About section, describing the story’s prompt, inspiration, homages, and the occasional Easter egg. You may discover a genre you didn’t know you liked.

The collection also includes six “bonus” ten-word stories with a short commentary about each and a secret bonus short work. All stories are narrated by John D. Parker, but are presented in a variety of narrative styles.
