Short Stories and Flash Fiction by Molly Clifford-Nixon is an anthology of stories and flash fiction with varying genres. The twenty stories range from a domestic setting to a fantasy setting. From an elf king trying to do his best to save his people but unable to forget his human love to a suspenseful mystery that will raise the hair at the back of your neck. Immerse yourself in different plots, experience various places, and shed a few tears or sighs with wistfulness in Molly Clifford-Nixon's Short Stories and Flash Fiction.

Molly Clifford-Nixon has created a collection of stories that grabbed my attention from the very first page. Each tale is unique in its premise and idea. Clifford-Nixon puts a lot of thought into the different stories, giving us eccentric but vivid scenes. The tales are fast-paced, and I found myself constantly intrigued and surprised by what came next. This collection of Short Stories and Flash fiction is perfect for those who are looking for a quick but exciting read. I never knew what to expect in the next chapter, and the intriguing titles for each story just pulled me in. Aside from short stories and flash fiction, some diary entries or letters gave a glimpse into the characters' lives.

I was impressed by these changes in points of view. Although they were barely two pages, they told an entire story all on their own. Clifford-Nixon's stories stand out in their themes, genre, and plot possibilities. I could not predict where each story would go, making me look forward to the next story each time. Overall, I found Short Stories and Flash Fiction by Molly Clifford-Nixon to be inventive and filled with one-of-a-kind tales that kept me intrigued right to the end. Good job!

Great read throughout. Wanted to get a quick read in before bedtime so thought I would have a go at one of the stories but ended up hooked and fell asleep nearly halfway through the entire book. Really gripping narratives. Couldn’t wait to finish off the rest of the stories.
