Hi there and welcome to the third and final term of Escape Pod’s Summer School, where we post some of our favorite flash fiction from the vault with a new perspective. I’m Divya, co-editor of the pod, and your instructor for this class. This episode also concludes our Summer Flashback series. We’ll be back next week with the best in original and reprint science fiction.

Today, I bring you three flash episodes from long, long ago. First up is “Standards,” by Richard K. Lyon, then we have “Paradox,” by Scott Janssens, and finally, “Stuck In An Elevator With Mandy Patinkin,” by Kitty Myers.

Listen to this week's EscapePod.

I was utterly tickled by Stuck in an Elevator With Mandy Patinkin.  Just the sound of the title makes me smile.  The ending wasn’t a huge surprise, but I liked it anyway.  Wonder if Patinkin knows he’s inspired a work of flash (not slash) fiction?  (Then again, he may very well be the subject of some slash, too.)
