Welcome to Beyond The Threshold.
I like to think of this as fiction for the restless. The restlessly creative mind is a little capricious; a little impetuous; a little bizarre. Above all else, it is fun. Beyond the Threshold will offer regular doses of speculative flash fiction (1000 words or less), designed to satisfy those who crave the short, the sweet, and the strange. In the same vein of brevity, flash book reviews of speculative fiction will also abound.
Please feel free to leave your comments, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
About the Author
My name is Shyla Fairfax-Owen. I hold a Master’s Degree in Film Studies, for which I specialized in Horror (within the frameworks of Gender and Society). I am highly influenced by everything I come in contact with: movies, books, graphic novels, and real life events and experiences. This site was born out of a desire to further explore the art and process of creating characters, settings, and whole worlds. This is a space of creative outlet.
You are also a writer. You get swept away by your own imagination and would love to share it. If you are interested in writing a guest post for this site, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In keeping with my theme, posts should be speculative fiction/poems under 1000 words.
