Product description

Product Description

Editor Laurie Steed describes the 'right' short stories as ones that 'sear their mark upon one's soul'. Repeatedly, this collection does that.' - Joanne Shiells, Books + Publishing


The 2016 Margaret River Short Story Competition anthology presents the finest emerging and established voices in Australian literature.


These are stories to be felt, read, and remembered. They cover births, deaths, and moments that define our hopes, fears, and failures.


They are stories that connect with a deeper sense of humanity. They are stories to be enjoyed at home, in our bed, or on the train: wherever it's possible to savour the quiet, loud, and unforgettable moments of life.


With her prize-winning story, 'Shibboleth,' Jo Riccioni paves the way for a collection of twenty-four immaculate stories. Other contributors include Magdalena McGuire, Julie Kearney, Cassie Hamer, Phil Sparrow, Michelle Wright, Mirandi Riwoe, and many more.


Editor Laurie Steed writes that, 'When I tell people I'm an author and editor of short fiction, they often reply that they don't like reading short stories. One might expect me to be dismayed by such a response. Instead, I'm all the more committed to assuring them that it is not that they don't like short stories. It's that they have not yet read the right ones.'


2015 Margaret River Short Story Competition winner, Melanie Napthine says, 'Over the years, the Margaret River Press short story collection has established a reputation for excellence. To appear in it in 2014 was exciting; to have the winning story in 2015 was an absolute thrill. There's no prize quite like having appeared in such a beautifully produced book among such talented company.'


'Shibboleth and other stories' is a celebration of talented Australian and New Zealand writers, both emerging and established. With twenty-four stories selected from over 200 entries, 'Shibboleth' is a delicately selected collection of outstanding original stories.
