A couple of days late, but here are the results of our largest ever Flash Fiction contest. This is so hot off the press, we haven't actually emailed the winners yet... (if you are the winner, runner up, or highly commended, you'll get an email in the next 48 hours). We will also publish some notes on the themes, standard of entries, and so on. But you can stop reading this now - go ahead and scan for your name!
