The stories and poems contained in this anthology have been chosen by the membership of UKAuthors.com writers’ website, by vote, from the many offerings which have graced the site. Not only are there a great number of topics and styles to interest and please, but along with highly sophisticated pieces there are also fresh, innocent offerings, all included on merit – in all, a fine mixture to interest and delight any reader.
Read about a girl who stalks a rock star for years and finally corners him; an imp that gets squashed; the downfall of a would-be internet poet; the inevitable consequences for any girl who partners a superhero; a quite amazing National Trust guide to some very unusual historic piles, and a prizewinning play with two dogs in the lead rôles.
The poetry ranges from exquisitely fragile expression to robustly funny or moving pieces: a treatise on how to send a telegram to request more spoons; a tribute to a first World War hero; the inherent wisdom of bees; how not to dispose of bones; a club for Edwardian vampires; how the poet used to smell, and a midnight foray with a ‘nice young lady’ in Amsterdam.
