Host Karl Fischer! Karl Fischer may or may not be three sharks in a trench coat. He will occasionally write something. He lives in Longmont, CO and co-manages Excession Press LLC with his wife, Whitney Fischer, and their two mini sharks (who look suspiciously like dogs).
Featuring Tameca L Coleman! Tameca L Coleman is not smiling for you. These teeth rise up out of their depths, tricking bigger sharks with a glimmer, latches on and spins a suctioned mouth into their flesh; once thought food, leaves a mark. These teeth got you! Punching up, returns tomorrow, even if you’re a goddamned submarine.

Will the REAL Fbomb Host please stand up??
Theme: No One Can Agree on Who Kona Picked to Sub for Her
Hosts Girls Just Wanna Have Us! Girls Just Wanna Have Us is a flash rock band, comprised of Daryl Gent in the Car, Hall-an and John(athan) Oates Montgomery. If flash fiction tells a story in 1000 words or less, they attempt to cover songs from the 1980s in 1000 heartbreaks or less, 3 chords or less, 2 instruments or less, 1 rehearsal or less. When an Fbomb host suddenly has to cancel at the last minute, they are the only ones flexible, courageous, and beloved enough to replace them.
Featuring Nancy Stohlman and her book Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities! Nancy Stohlman is the founder and curator of the Fbomb Flash Fiction Series circa 2013 and counting! Tonight she will be releasing her new book, Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities!
