Among the stories in this volume: a croupier takes on his casino; routine breaks down in an unusual zoo; a commune struggles with a rat infestation; the residents of a lonely tower block receive a visitor from the future; and the truth is revealed about the tragic death of a local hero (or so the papers say).

Includes the winning stories from the Fiction Desk flash fiction competition.
