More info:

"Definitions of flash fiction are often made for editorial convenience. Should these stories be no more than 500 words? Seven hundred and fifty? A thousand? What matters far more than the arbitrary word count is the effect of the story.
Flash fiction is efficient. At its best, the flash of flash fiction is the dazzle of lightning, stunning the reader with both brevity and brilliance."
