A showcase for authors Arachne Press has published previously in anthologies, giving a wider perspective on their writing. A tendency towards fantasy and magical realism, with Cassandra Passarelli’s (Liberty Tales) 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.
