Perfect Family Tales And Other Trivia

The art of the short-story writer is that of the cartoonist. It is the magical craft of creating entire worlds with a few simple strokes of a pen. Tales told by an idiot? Maybe! But my tales are also a mix of reality and fantasy; truth and lies; some based on my own family; others, not. Readers must guess which characters are real; who are inventions - and who are an amalgam of both. Please draw the boundaries for yourself.

The End of

John.StrotherIn announcement that could well be the opener for a micro-mystery, Jon Strother of has announced the closure of the website.

But he insists that the community of flash writers will live on.

Strother says: “I am sorry to announce that after nearly seven years running our website, will be closing.

“However, Friday Flash is not going away.

“We have a great community here, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Thanks to all who have contributed to the site over the years”.

Writers will continue to use the site’s Facebook page to post links to their stories and I shall still pen  PerfectlyWriteFamilyTales  with a view to their Frdayflashappearing in ebook format.

Wishing all my fellow flashers well in their many endeavours.
