Individual stories are strong, but the sense of an ending coming is stronger…' DORA D'AGOSTINO recommends Laura van den Berg's short story 'Antarctica': 'As I read, I couldn’t help but think that, though years and continents may separate us, artists are still inspired by death, grief, heartache, loss, joy, surprise, birth, and everything in-between to create something new that speaks directly to us…' GEOFFREY HEPTONSTALL discusses John Fowles's often overlooked collection, The Ebony Tower: 'Fowles’s capacity for narrative invention indicates not only charisma, a secular magic, but also an extraordinary comprehension of the human.'
