The first 199 stories

Tomorrow marks the 200th week in a row that I will have posted a story for #FridayFlash. In honor of that event, I'm giving away a free copy of my flash fiction anthology, "Blood Picnic and other stories", a free copy of my forthcoming book, "Verbosity's Vengeance", and a 2014 Audi A5. All you have to do is leave a comment below. I'll randomly pick a winner from all comments submitted.

Note: I'm kidding about the Audi.

This is a lot of words under the bridge since my first #FridayFlash, "Nearer Comes The Moon". Some have been good, some have been experimental, some have been inaccessibly weird. Regardless, here are the titles of the 199 stories to date, presented in order as they appeared here on Landless over the last 200 weeks. See if you can spot any old favorites.

  1. Leeds Darts Champion! I remember that. And the one with the inexpressibly aweful rainmaker in the little western town ...

    1. A Double Month of Dust in Whiskey Gulch. Yep, that was a fun one.


  2. Extraordinary run, Tony. Very well done.
