The world of short fiction has long been a form of expression that has amazed and excited generations of readers. The short story itself has managed to pack depth and emotion, leaving the reader content and satisfied with the outcome of the writers’ unique sense of imagination, but also being so absorbed by the words on the page, that they want to discover more and truly live, breathe and explore the fictional world.


The following pieces of short fiction have done this very thing, exploring a range of themes and ideas and subsequently arranging them in a way that resonates with the reader. Be that in regard to a sense of thrill and shock but also focusing on moments of emotion and meaning, it is safe to say that regardless of the range of genre explored the following work will leave a profound effect on the reader.
