Anna Vaught and Anna Johnson, Editors

This diverse and varied anthology of short fiction, essays and poems includes contributions by Sam JordisonSteven O’Brien, Justine Sless, Jules Pretty, Patrick Wright and poet M W Bewick as well as writers from the current Patrician Press stable. The contributors confront our present political ‘tempestuous’ times and some of the works have a science-fiction flavour to include dystopian, authoritarian and imagined worlds.


“An inspiring collection which is variously wise, raw, funny, enraged, and never anything less than thought provoking. In these troubled times, we all need to take time to think and dream about how things could and should be” Peter Tatchell


A donation to Amnesty International will be made from the proceeds.
