Flash Science Fiction for Kids: An Anthology Ken Stiles, Ed. Motivating reluctant readers is always a challenge. Flash Science Fiction for Kids offers a solution. This new anthology compiled by Ken Stiles presents "flash science fiction" - short, easy to read tales that tap into a child's interest in science and stir the imagination. Children can relate to many of the young protagonists and their predicaments, such as the forlorn, embarrassed little alien who gets stuck in a coin-operated ride, or the siblings who squabble over doing household chores (with a twist ), or the young socialite bewildered as to which utensil to use at an intergalactic dinner party. This thought-provoking and often humorous collection contains 20 "drabbles" (stories of exactly 100 words) and 10 longer "flash fiction" tales, each under 1,500 words from beginning to end, packed with entertaining characters and colorful adventures. Both reluctant and strong readers will enjoy this collection of flash science fiction stories for some good old-fashioned fun.
