Edited by Jim Hinks

One of Comma’s acclaimed anthologies, featuring the best of the UK’s emerging short story writers.
Organ-playing wunderkinds, poets on government re-employment schemes, unlikely celebrity party guests…

While these stories take in a vast array of subjects and styles, they share a common attribute: they demand our participation, urging us to fill in the blanks, the spaces between the words.

They’re stories that always keep something held back - whether it’s a concealed motivation, a mysterious confederation of the familiar and the far-fetched, or an image with the eloquence to convey what a character could never articulate – it’s their very reticence that makes them so compelling.
