A gem of a book, with a hoard of treasure waiting to be unearthed. Some of these exquisite stories will quite literally transport you to another world, one that you didn't even realise existed until the very second you read it. These authors have perfected the art of the short story, the wonder of a tale that leaves you floating. This is fantasy, in its very broadest sense and if you haven’t partaken before, don’t be put off by the banner; these perfectly sized tales are your chance to explore, soar, go beyond, a chance to look differently at life. Dip a toe in and just enjoy the creativity, the joy that these stories…proper, distinctive, innovative stories, can bring. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Best British Fantasy 2014 by Steve Haynes

2014’s selection offers stories written by eight women and six men. All have been published in 2013, either in popular genre magazines such as Interzone, or in anthologies. In subject matter, the stories range from hard SF space travel, through near future Zero Hours social comment, to an alternate retelling of Theseus and the Minotaur and a world where flowers whisper poems.

Reviews

'More good news come our way from Salt Publishing, it seems that they will not only release a series of year's best British fantasy, but also starting from next year a series of yearly Best British Horror too, edited by Johnny Mains.' Dark Wolf Fantasy

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Judi Davies

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.
