Latest Previews (Forethoughts)
The publication of a new Bristol Short Story Prize anthology is always cause for celebration, and although I set off with this a little later than I’d have liked, I’m still excited.
Surprisingly I’ve never reviewed an Unthology anthology on RobAroundBooks before, so I guess it’s time for me to make amends.
Latest Reviews (Afterthoughts)
Reading Dark Lies the Island has reinforced my belief that Kevin Barry is one of the greatest short story writers living today. If you’re looking for a definitive lesson in the art of short story telling, then this is it.
With this being a debut anthology from a new publisher I didn’t expect it to be anything more than an average publication. I was however quite taken aback. Various Authors turned out to be surprisingly mature and refreshingly entertaining.
