Allison Symes’ debut collection of flash fiction From Light to Dark and Back Again
A selection of short snappy tales which will have you on the edge of your seat. There are short and longer tales on themes from fairy stories with a twist, to the supernatural, at times pleasingly humorous.
The above sums up the book beautifully.
When it comes to your fictional world, what kind of press/media exists there? Do writers seek to promote their work as we do here on Earth or is creative writing of any kind banned? (Writers can be dangerous people - we deal in ideas and there are so many regimes that do not welcome this. One of course could be the fictional world you're setting up so think about how that regime would issue news, suppress anything it didn't want coming out and its relationship with the media on your world).
Are there journalists risking life and limb to bring the truth to the people or have the regime been more subtle than that? If your media is giving the people a diet of celebrity gossip and tittle-tattle, are the people intersted in serious journalism (and was that something the regime counted on? It would be a good way to bury truth).
