Cover of Long Grey Beard and Glittering Eye: The Fiction Desk Volume 9

Our ninth short story anthology.

Edited by Rob Redman

Published August 2015

ISBN 9780992754754

Stories to keep your attention.

The nine stories in this volume continue The Fiction Desk's tradition of showcasing the best new short fiction. They will take you from a dingy London pub to an open lake in rural America, from a future under the tyranny of social media to a recent past mired in conflict, and from a housing estate in shock to the end of civilisation as we know it.

This volume also includes the winners of the first Newcomer Prize for Short Stories.
