LIFE IN BLUE, a collection of twenty-nine works of flash and short fiction by Lauren Stone, embraces the possibilities of alternate realities. She forces the reader to question worlds they know, familiar stories, and the very nature of perception. The stories range from romance to horror. Varying in length from a brisk three hundred to a marathon at seven thousand words. Each story presents a possible reality in which the reader is asked to question what they know. "Edelweiss" transforms the classic tale of the Von Trapp family into a tale of pure horror as Maria attempts to survive the children. This collection personifies the post-modern movement of speculative fiction.

"This book is only 99 cents. I found it on Amazon. Read it this afternoon. After the last page, I sat back and said, WTF just happened? Then I laughed, because I totally got sucked in. It also gave me an idea. You might buy it and do the same, or it might make you stabby-shouty angry. Don't yell at me if it's the latter, because you've just been warned."  Renee Miller


"Just. I just... yeah. I can't explain why I love this but I do. I really really do."  Katrina Monroe
