The best of modern-day short story writing. From flash fiction to mini-novelette, Fairlight presents The Fairlight Book of Short Stories: Volume 1, twenty-four of its best short stories from some of the world's most talented new and emerging English language writers. Chosen from work sent to Fairlight over several years by writers around the globe, this anthology celebrates the art of the short story form: a vehicle with the power to delight, entertain or instantly transport the reader to another state, another world, another emotion. The authors include Judith Wilson (winner of the Lorian Hemingway Short Story Competition, the London Short Story Prize, and shortlisted for Colm Toibin International Short Story Award) and Adam Trodd (winner of Benedict Kiely Short Story Competition, and shortlisted for the Cúirt New Writing Prize, Over The Edge New Writer Of The Year and the Bath Flash Fiction Award) along with Women's Prize-longlisted author Sophie van Llewyn.


"We at Fairlight have continually posted short stories online, every week, in support of our ethos, to promote the work of new and emerging writers. This has enabled us to build a network of authors, whose talent we have proudly advocated. We are so excited to share this array of their excellent work in a physical publication and to expand their readership." —Louise Boland, CEO Fairlight Books
