    Icy Sedgwick is a #FridayFlash regular on Twitter, and Checkmate is a collection of 15 of her short pieces. It’s a good choice for a rainy weekend afternoon or plane trip.Price/Length: $0.99 / 15,000 wordsSynopsis: A collection of Icy’s flash fiction, published between 2008 and mid-2010.

    A wonderful collection of tales of subtle urban fantasy with a delicious gothic flavour. Icy Sedgwick's flash fiction is perfect and the longer stories here also captivate the reader.

My favourites were "The Midas Box", "The Thwarted Stalker", "The Mirror Phase", and the humorous "The Dead Do Listen".
