A stiletto is a type of shoe with a very high, spiked heel. It is also a kind of knife.
Your job as an author of erotica is to write a story, 500 words or less, featuring a stiletto. We expect your story to be unique and hot as hell. How you use your stiletto is up to you. Weapon, footwear, or metaphor for the injustice of modern socio-economic systems - anything you can think of is fine with us. Just be original.
Fitting all that into 500 words may be difficult, but we know you are up to it.
Our 2006 Stiletto Flash is an erotic flash contest. There is no entry fee. Stories must be received by Wednesday, February 1, 2006. Prizes will be awarded to the judges' three favorite stories:
