I’m a fan of short stories. Writing them and reading them. Anthologies, though, are a difficult beast – there is usually a stinker, and they’re hard to get right.
Dark Currents by NewCon Press collects 16 stories by up-and-coming authors, blending weird, SF, Fantasy, Slipstream, and deep geek humour.
It is a Good Thing, bringing together lost love, lost civilisation, lost fear, and lost hope all tied together in a thread. Worth the price on the tin, and part of a movement where small presses publish excellent work via the quiet revolution of ebooks.
