Maybe for Escape Pod it should be called an EPiphany?

Greg van Eekhout is trying to coin the term "story grenades." He was looking at 100-word fiction, I think. He has the point that you don't have to say "I wrote a piece of flash fiction," you just say, "I wrote a story grenade."

Most libraries carry 1-3 collections named Sudden Fiction published in the early '90s. Must have been on a booklist somewhere then.

My list:
     storygasm

I don't know if I'd use it for this in particular, but "storygasm" is a very cool word.  I'd love to use it for something sometime.  >8->

I once, when talking about a story that used the term "Touring Test", said "This story gave me a nerdgasm."

Nerdgasm I've heard before.  E.g., when Wil Wheaton did an intro for Mur's Geek Fu Action Grip.

I don't know if this is based on anything real, but I've always looked at Sudden Fiction as a brush closer to prose poetry than flash fiction is.

What about Zeph fiction?  As in zephyr?

Please no, I drove a Mercury Zephyr and it was probably one of the single worst cars I have ever driven.
