The Big Issue in the North: Award for Short Fiction 2013

by David Gaffney, Kevin Gopal and Jamie McGarry (Editor)
£8.99   paperback  Valley Press (2013)

The Big Issue in the North: Award for Short Fiction 2013 by David Gaffney, Kevin Gopal and Jamie McGarry (Editor) In 2013, The Big Issue in the North launched an award for new writing. One hundred and eleven people submitted short stories to the judging panel, which included The Big Issue in the North’s editor Kevin Gopal, Manchester author David Gaffney, and Valley Press editor Jamie McGarry – who, after much debate, managed to whittle the entries down to just ten finalists.
 
This anthology collects the winning stories into a single volume, which should be essential reading for any fans of modern short fiction who want to support a worthy cause; at least 50% of the proceeds from this anthology will go to the Big Issue in the North Trust.

Nights Out by Raef Boylan
The Taste of Burnt Mackerel by Ralph Bullivant
The Shot by Max Dunbar
Dart Times by Rory Gleeson
Killer by Anthony Howcroft
Relic by David Martin
Stillness by Duncan Ross
