    Can't lie - I'm in this anthology, so of course I think it's great! But, there are many more reasons why the 2015 National Flash-Fiction Day anthology is incredible; the other 60+ stories featured in 'Landmarks'. All of the flash fiction in this anthology has been inspired by the theme of 'Geography' and this has been interpreted in many ways - more ways than I thought possible.

But, there are many more reasons why the 2015 National Flash-Fiction Day anthology is incredible; the other 60+ stories featured in 'Landmarks'. All of the flash fiction in this anthology has been inspired by the theme of 'Geography' and this has been interpreted in many ways - more ways than I thought possible. No two stories are the same in their treatment of this theme. We have maps, places, travelling, school classrooms, bodies, the beginning of place itself, and everything in between. I don't want to spoil everything for you in this wonderful anthology - I believe the beauty of reading is discovering things for yourself - so I fully encourage you to buy and read this anthology, but I shall discuss two or three of the stories from this anthology. One story I particularly liked is Jenny Woodhouse's 'How the Earth Began', which I thought was a unique interpretation of the theme of geography. It's about the creation of the Earth itself. Woodhouse re-imagines the biblical story with God being bored and desiring conflict and Lucifer eventually complies after the battleground for their war is set - and that is how the Earth is created. I love it when writers take a story or myth and subvert it the way Woodhouse has done in order to create something new and different that resonates with the reader. 'A Curious State of Affairs' by Ingrid Jendrzejewski is another story which demonstrates the very different directions a theme can be taken. Jendrzejewski transports us to a time I'm sure we've all experienced at some point in our lives: exams. But what this pupil does with their geography test paper is very unusual and cunning, and I'm NOT going to tell you what it is because you really need to read it yourself. The anthology also includes the winners and highly commended stories from the 2015 National Flash-Fiction Day Micro-Fiction competition, all of which are brilliant. A favourite of mine is Ian Shine's 'Marks and Sparks', and his story, the title story of the anthology, is also brilliant. There is so much in this anthology that no review could really cover everything that is awaiting you. Experience it for yourself. Let the writers in this collection take you on a journey around the world and beyond.
