I am very proud to be editor of the first publication from Escaped Ink Press, “Tall Tales and Short Stories Volume One” — it contains fifty stories by a range of authors. Some of the stories made me laugh, others made me cry and others still squirm with an ‘ick’. I wanted the first book to be a cross-genre publication to allow people to discover the joy and range of flash fiction and I think I succeeded!
Publication Title: Tall Tales & Short Stories Volume One Author: Multiple Authors Publisher: Escaped Ink Press Publication Date: 16th October 2019 Synopsis:
Tall Tales & Short Stories Volume One showcases 50 excellent flash fiction stories that take you on a multi-genre voyage of discovery across space, time and place.
Despite their brevity, these tiny tales get right to the heart of what makes us human. They’ll tug at your heart strings, horrify, amuse and make you think, the words lingering in your mind long after you finish reading.
A collection of talented authors, known names and new, from across the planet have penned compelling stories of birth, love and lust, heartache and revenge, death and the afterlife. Throw in aliens and angels, alcoholic bulls and alternative histories, hauntings and huntings, oh and a cowbot! What’s not to love about this anthology?
