    *Throws confetti, has brought virtual cake*
    Good job, whether or not your story was included in the anthology! The stories’ quality as a whole just keeps going up… and up…
    (Honestly, I’m surprised I made it!)

    As a reader, I was supremely pleased with the scope and variety of the worlds and characters here, and am only sorry more of my favorites could not be squeezed in. ;)

  • Congratulations, everyone!! *confetti*

    This is going to be an amazing anthology, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

  • I’m so honored to be a part of this amazing group!!! Congrats to the rest of the authors 🥳🤩 we really wreaked some havok 😁

  • Agree with the postings above. I’m honored to have a story included—congrats to everyone on this list. Many talented authors created ingenious flash fiction this season. Such great stories both above and throughout the six months.
