Just as flash and microfiction are tiny stories that tell a life and are self-contained, so are the "sections" of the flashes in these linked serial stories. They are merely linked, but they each carry within them the whole of a story. This is in my opinion a new genre, and one that combines my love of flash, micro and memoir. Don't ever worry you have "missed" a section in these tales. They can be read as linked or as individuals and it is up to the writer to make the reader feel welcome to even just one story at a time. This is not, in contrast, a "chapter book." It fits the Fictionaut model perfectly.
