The Internet has made universal publication a reality. Anyone can be a writer. Anyone can be a publisher. Anyone can contribute to the world-wide exchange of ideas.
Publication use to be a top, down proposition. Book printers, magazines and newspapers were the publishers and the rest of us were the readers. Now publication has been democratized. Technology has turned publication on its head.
Universal publication has its advantages. One advantage is that it has opened up undreamed of opportunities for publishers and writers. There would be no Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette if it was not for universal publication.
And universal publication has its disadvantages. One disadvantage is that now you have to search through a lot more debris to get to the good stuff.
Welcome to the brave new world of universal publication.

This Sunday the Steelers play the Patriots in New England. Very few Steelers fans believe that the 2-5 Steelers can make the playoffs this season. Steelers fans are not used to losing football.
But this team is in serious trouble and it may take more than one season to correct the problems.
The erotic flash fiction short story is not only good entertainment, but it is also art.
