A showcase for authors Arachne Press has published previously in anthologies, giving a wider perspective on their writing. The collection as a whole has a tendency towards fantasy and magical realism, with Cassandra Passarelli’s (Liberty Tales) gritty Guatemalan stories, and Katy Darby’s (London Lies, Stations, Shortest Day, Longest Night) SF and historical stories alongside Joan Taylor-Rowan’s (London Lies, Lover’s Lies, Stations) acid humour and modern desperation and Sarah James’ (Longest Day, Shortest Night; Vindication) elliptical poet’s sensibility brought to flash fiction and Helen Morris’ (Liberty Tales, Solstice Shorts) ability to get to the heart of a story, and make you laugh out loud or weep inconsolably.
