Why Anthologies Are Like Buses

I’m very excited – while I’m off filling my days with holiday fun – to have this opportunity to share Debbie Young’s post with you. One of my short stories is also part of the Out of the Shadows collection. Enjoy.

A quick shout-out for two fun anthology projects in which some of my stories are featured – and National Flash Fiction Day (today!)

I’m a big fan of short story anthologies, which serve as a sampler of the work of different writers, usually offering one story from each of a number of authors.

NB An anthology is a different animal to a collection, which features the work of a single author, e.g. my short story collections Marry in Haste, Quick Change and Stocking Fillers.
