    1. My mate (and in my writer's group)Joel Lane has a story withinAnother very fine collection selected by Mr Royle. I’d already read four – Jon Mcgregor’s (not his greatest, the second person pov always puts me off, but good), and Stuart Evers’s (a sad little piece) from their respective collections This Isn't the Sort of Thing That happens to Someone Like You and Ten Stories about Smoking; also Will Self’s (a very clever story about someone developing an iPad psychosis) and Socrates Adam [...]


    2. This collection contains 20 stories. What I was mainly looking for when I began to read it was stories that were contemporary in style, structure and subject matter, but still with the classical features of narrative arc, inciting incident, characterisation, dialogue, sub-text, and all the old fashioned virtues. "I Arrive First", by Emma Jane Unsworth is possibly the best story in the book. It is a subverted love story which shows a very good eye for detail. This is an excellent example of what [...]


    3. Such wonderful creations! -I'de love to re-read them all over again! These were my favorites:-#The dark space in the House in the House in the Garden at the Centre of the World-Robert Sherman#Half-mown Lawn - Dan Powell#I'm the guy who wrote The Wild Bunch- Julian Gough#Aparatifs with Mr. Hemingway - Jonathan Trigell#The Heart of Denis Noble - Alison MacLeod#We wave and call - Jon McGregor#Sad, Dark Thing - Michael Marshall Smith#The last Library - AK BenedictOf these again"The Half-mown Lawn" a [...]


    4. An enjoyable set of short stories. Some were beautifully written and had you wanting to know more, and obviously there were a few that weren't to my taste.Some of my favourites from the collection included:- 'I Arrive First' by Emma Jane Unsworth. It was incredibly cute and made my heart flutter.- 'To Brixton Beach' by Stella Duffy. There was something so relatable about this short story.- 'Wide and Deep' by Socrates Adams. It was unique and puzzling, there was a rather disturbing element to it [...]


    5. Great collection put together by Nicholas Royle. A fantastic selection to dip in and out of. Lots of different styles and concerns but all high quality accomplished short stories. Personal favourites was Dan Powell's Half Mown Lawn. This was a deceptively simple story, no pyrotechnics, or self-conscious styling - simple, honest and devastating. I'll be looking out for more from Powell - not to mention next year's Best British Short Stories 2013.


    6. Lucid observation, clever prose, wit and intrigue aplenty. Actual storytelling seems to have taken a back seat. Jon McGregor's 'We Wave and Call' stood out.
