BSF Flash Fiction Contest: January 2020

And the winner is… “Il guardiano del faro”!

The very first appearance of my flash fiction “The Lighthouse Keeper”, in its original Italian version.

Please take a look at the contest page on Breve Storia Felice. You’ll find the notes of the judges, the flash and an interview. In Italian, of course.

Thanks to the judges Marco Riva and Roberta Resega from OttoCentro.it and thanks to all the editorial staff at Breve Storia Felice: Chiara Zanini, Gabriele Claudio Costagliola, Astrid DeVilla, and Teo Williger.

New Edition for Of Reality and Dream

The second edition is the result of valuable feedback from readers, a restyling that translated into small yet substantial changes: removed the numbering of the stories with the title at the end, replaced by a classic initial title; removed page breaks in correspondence with the scenes that make up The Illusion of Free Will, so as to allow a more fluid reading experience.


Some flash fiction stories, whose stylistic register was out of tune with the whole, were removed for format coherence: The Shadow, Massimiliano Observes, The Substantial Reality of Facts, Game Time and Happy Ending remain available only to the loyal owners of the first edition.


The sequence of the stories and the cover were also reviewed.

Too bad that it was classified by mistake as literary fiction, and from then on all hell broke loose.

“All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho, 1983
