Flash fiction may be short, but that doesn’t make it any less entertaining than lengthy ones. In fact, the elements of suspense and surprise work very well with short stories, drawing readers in and leaving them sufficient room for their own interpretation. Hoping to stimulate readers’ minds, author Roger Zotti shares a collection of short but intriguing fiction that will wreck havoc with the imagination.

The flash fictions in The Ever-Changing B Movie and other imaginings are diverse glimpses of characters or situations. Most of them are full of loose ends and can’t be neatly tied up at the end and satisfactorily explained. When it comes to the book’s technique—specifically, description—the author agrees wholeheartedly with what Elmore Leonard once said, “I like a lot of talking in a book . . . I like some description but not too much of that.”

Covering a plethora of themes, this eclectic collection features stories that touch on poignant reminisces like “Remember Me” and “Watching Studio One.” It also explores the mysterious like what happened to “Sara in Class” and “Neighbors.” Readers can discover other fascinating tales as they immerse in The Ever-Changing B Movie and other imaginings.
