another one bites the dust

This makes me sad. To the best of my knowledge, microfiction.net never wound up publishing in print as they'd planned. Online, there were a total of four pieces posted, if I remember correctly. I had very high hopes for this pub when I first heard of it coming into being. Bob Thurber is a very talented guy, and something of a flash specialist, so it looked like it had the potential to be a truly great pub. And I really want to see more and more publications that are dedicated to the art of flash fiction, because it's still a form that most folks don't know exist. So the more places there are like microfiction.net, insolent rudder, Vestal Review, etc., the happier I am. I'm definitely sad to see this one go.

alas, they never met a flash they didn't reject.

Classed themselves right out of the biz?!

Too bad, I agree.

Yes, it is a shame. They looked so promising.
