    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.

    Thanks, Gloria. This answers my question. I had hoped to read the serial stories called Birds of Prayer in order, yet I may end up reading them out of order. It seems that would be as good a test of their linkedness as any.
