Celebrating Parthian's twenty-first birthday in 2014, this beautiful limited edition anthology of twenty one contemporary stories offers a kaleidoscope of identities, perspectives and settings which encapsulate much that is vibrant and exciting about modern Welsh short fiction. The stories examine cultural and combative conflict, the action moving from a Cardiff Black Friday to video stores, hotel rooms, restaurants, traveller sites, parks, gardens, amusement arcades, festivals and forests at home and abroad. Original artwork has been created for each story by John Abell, winner of the Print Prize and overall runner-up at Welsh Artist of the Year 2013. Writers in the collection include Wales Book of the Year winners Deborah Kay Davies and Rhian Edwards, the EFG Sunday Times short story prize shortlisted Roshi Fernando, Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction nominee Robert Lewis, Dylan Thomas Prize winner Rachel Trezise, Terry Hetherington Young Writer's Award winner Joao Morais, Media Wales People's Prize winner Tyler Keevil, National Eisteddfod Literature Medal winner Sian Melangell Dafydd.
Plus: Lane Ashfeldt, Craig Hawes, Dan Tyte, Eluned Gramich, Susmita Bhattacharya, Georgia Carys Williams, Robert Lewis, Sarah Coles, Holly Muller, Rebbecca Ray, Richard Owain Roberts and Carly Holmes, and with translated work by Peter Kristufek and Monique Schwitter.
