Several years ago, I had the honor and pleasure of working with countless amazing fellow indie authors to put together 4 flash fiction anthologies.

These anthologies are free on multiple bookstores and have been downloaded and reviewed many times. I should really provide some stats on that!

I had planned a fifth anthology, around space opera, tentatively called Blast. But I never quite got around to it.

Until now!

The Plan

The Requirements

The Schedule

Stories Due: Oct 15, 2024

Publish: Nov 15, 2024

Please Help Me With


To hire me to line edit and proofread your story/ies for the special flat rate of $10 each, email [email protected] with the subject line: “Edit my flash fiction story for $10 please.” This is entirely optional and not in the least required. It will get you a great editing job but not any kind of preference in the anthology.

If you’d like an editor credit, email me. I’ll need you to proofread 20 stories for me and to bring in at least 10 new stories, including your own.

See more about my editing and marketing services on my Editing page.

Author Collaboration

I often do collaborations so if you want to find out about them right away, join my author collaboration list.


Here’s the license I’m asking you to agree to. It’s plainly visible at the end of the submission form:

I affirm that I am the owner of the content provided herein and am granting a royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable license to use the content as part of the anthology “2024 Space Opera Flash Fiction Anthology,” (title subject to change) edited by George Donnelly in ebook, print, audiobook and translated formats. Once the anthology is published, I promise to promote it to the best of my ability through my author website, mailing list and social media account(s). (If you don’t agree, please don’t submit the form.)


Any income generated will go towards promoting this anthology. However, the goal is to help new readers discover your work, so it is very unlikely that any income will be generated.

Tentative Cover

Here is the cover I bought years ago for this anthology. Please let me know if you like it or not as I am absolutely open to changing it.

Blast a Space Opera Flash Fiction Anthology

If using Google Docs

If you’re using Google Docs, please share the story with [email protected] or just grant access upon request to that address. Ditto if you’re using Dropbox and only want to share the file with a specific account/address.

I look forward to working with you! Any questions, please email [email protected].

P.S. I’ve also announced this at KBoards. Join the conversation there!
