OUR NEW ANTHOLOGY


Our new Anthology 2015-18


Now in its 7th re-print (!!), our 2015-18 Anthology, which I edited, includes 57 stories by 45 Gloucestershire authors. It covers the six SSS events from Nov 2015 to May 2018. It has 254 pages. It's priced at £10 (Paperback) or £2.99 (Kindle).

July 2019 update - We're absolutely thrilled that Nicholas Royle, the editor of the annual publication, Best British Short Stories, has mentioned our anthology in his forward to the 2019 edition and specifically praised two stories - The Thief by Alex Clark (p.83) and The Journey to Everywhere by Joanna Campbell (p.222). Praise indeed.
