“Reading Allison Spooner’s flash fiction is like going for a pleasant walk around town and finding yourself irresistibly drawn into dark, damp, and quite probably dangerous alleys. You know you shouldn’t go down there, but you just can’t help yourself. Perfect for anyone with a slightly twisted sense of humor and a finely tuned sense of irony.”
–Erin Bartels, author of We Hope for Better Things
