This anthology is the fifth to be published containing the winning stories of the critically acclaimed Henshaw Press Short Story Competition. This edition contains twenty-one of the prize-winning and highly commended stories from the competitions over the past two years. The book offers an eclectic mix of vignettes of humanity: romance, crime, ghosts, tears, laughter, triumph over adversity and daydreaming at Tesco Express. There is something for everyone. It is full of previously unpublished stories from some of the world’s best story writers. It is a pic ‘n’ mix of original, intelligent and beautifully crafted tales which you can dip in and out of, during coffee breaks, before bed, while eating lunch lunch in the sun or on the bus on the way home. These snapshots of life and imagination are both entertaining and thought provoking and are guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your lips (often at the same time).
