If you're in the mood for a bit of micro fiction, you've come to the right place. Postcard Shorts has several hundred diverse and diverting short stories, for you to read, share and enjoy.

The inspiration for this site comes from a challenge made by George Hay, a science fiction magazine editor in the 1970s, to Arthur C. Clarke (and others). The challenge was to write a short story to put on a postcard. One result was Arthur C. Clarke's story "Quarantine", which you can read here.

Postcard shorts is open to all genres of flash fiction. We hope you enjoy the site!
