The generous dead, the vengeful dead, the bored dead and ... well, the dead. Gothic mansions and bullets,  gangland alleyways and graveyards.

Stories set in the USA, the UK, India, Italy and Indonesia. Entertaining writers from around the world and voices from under represented groups.

The following writers are contributors to our debut book, Tales From The Ether.

For most writers, it is really difficult to blend genre. Unobtrusive yet fully effective and moving flashbacks are a challenge. Not so for this writer. In her piece, '50-East', M Rene Bradshaw creates a compelling mix of crime, character, place, and history. The only question we have to ask is, what will she give us next?

Thea has the ability to capture not only the essentials of a relationship, but also to elevate those everyday moments into something revealing and symbolic. In her pieces, 'Room for Two' and 'Soap', Thea invites the reader to watch as a relationship unfolds and also to enjoy and reflect.

Thea Etnum   Fiction


“If you get stuck, get away from your desk. Take a walk, take a bath, go to sleep, make a pie, draw, listen to ­music, meditate, exercise; whatever you do, don't just stick there scowling at the problem. But don't make telephone calls or go to a party; if you do, other people's words will pour in where your lost words should be. Open a gap for them, create a space. Be patient."

[The Guardian, 25 February 2010]”
