Six short fiction stories which explore the light and dark sides of summer.
Fatal Error by Lynda Wilcox
After a near-fatal car crash, Ann Nesbitt decides to recuperate in Beachcombe, a place she hasn't visited in twenty years. The village has changed in that time, and so has Ann, but as the memories come rushing back, evoked by the looming bulk of Haddon Head, Ann faces a stark choice and the ghost of her past.
Nineteen Seventy-Steve by David Wailing
Steve’s summer is the best! He’s going to remember it forever. But can you remember anything without becoming part of the memory?
A Royal Mess by Rosen Trevithick
Dee Whittaker and her estranged husband Gareth, are destined to become a crime fighting double act.
However, it’s the calm before the storm. With her marriage still holding together, Dee dips her toes into the world of indie publishing. She joins a forum, unaware that the very people she asks for help, will eventually send her life spiralling out of control, landing her in mortal danger.
She asks for feedback on a blurb for her short story, ‘A Royal Mess’, and finds herself flummoxed by the forum members’ responses. Should she really set her comedy about a royal-wedding-themed-best-dressed competition, in Baghdad during 9-11, or are the other writers completely insane?
