These stories take the reader from the shores of Lake Garda in Italy to a hospital room in Utah, from a retirement home overlooking the Solent to an unusual school in the wilds of Scotland. They introduce the reader to people like Daniel, a government employee looking for an escape; and William, who is—to put it mildly—a most remarkable dog.

There are a dozen new stories, from a range of new and established authors. Readers may be familiar with Charles Lambert, Danny Rhodes, or Matthew Licht, while many of the others are making their debuts.
