Short story authors published by the Fiction Desk

The Fiction Desk short story anthologies contain a range of authors, from first-timers to more established names. Recently we've featured debut stories by Benjamin Johncock and Jason Atkinson, and Crying Just Like Anybody contains our first translated story, by Slovenian author Miha Mazzini.
