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 MW 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.

The book is co-edited by Anna Johnson.

“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

The book was launched at the Bookmarks Bookshop in Bloomsbury, London on Friday, 1 March 2019 and as part of the Essex Book Festival at the Art Exchange Gallery in Wivenhoe Park, Colchester on Tuesday, 5 March 2019.

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