Flash Fiction: Old Testament, Nevada by @StartYourNovel

Old Testament, Nevada

There’s something about the desert at night that keeps the dog listening. She’s black against the silver sand of a clear night and sits on her haunches and sometimes essays a bark that dies in her throat.

“Toffee,” I whisper to my dog. I sit beside her. Be midnight soon.

About Stan Faryna


  1. I’ll be honest. I’d never heard of Flash Fiction before now. Really cool. Thanks a lot for sharing John.

    • There’s plenty of flash fiction and micro-fiction on Twitter, too. I recommend that you also check out @nanoed @InstantFiction and @VeryShortStory over there.

  2. I love flash fiction! Great work. I’m looking forward to seeing more!

  3. I love flash fiction as it leaves it in the imagination of the reader as to what happened before and after. I find my mind far more creative and awake wondering these things than an author telling me everything.
    For example, the dog silenced it’s bark and yet felt the need to almost bark, so it has sensed something is out there somewhere but what?!
