Crime writing at its best: strong stories, frighteningly real characters and powerful narratives. This collection is a showcase of talent from new and established writers. Find yourself trapped in the heads of victims pleading for mercy, or the evil minds of cold bloodied serial killers. Whether it's blackmail, obsession or a case of wrong place, wrong time, there is blood. And there is crime. Crime after Crime.







Do you believe in angels? This collection of fictional short stories explores encounters with angels – in whatever form they take. Some stories are sad, some are funny; all will touch you. The collection includes a new story by Laura Wilkinson, author of BloodMining (winner of the Bridge House Debut Novel Competition 2010).






 Everyone remembers what they were doing when the shocking news broke: when Kennedy was shot, when Princess Diana died and when the first plane crashed into the World Trade Centre on 9/11. Yet everyday lives continued with their own ups and downs. This collection shows us some of those possible stories and how they are gently connected with the day's world shattering event.






This is an anthology of the winners of the Bridge House Publishing 2009 Short Story Competition. All of the stories in this collection are strong and well-crafted. It’s an exciting mix. Surprise and delight follow surprise and delight. It truly is a mosaic of wondrous tales.







A book of bible stories retold in the modern idiom make an interesting read whether for adults or children. Many of the well known episodes from both Old and New Testament are included in this little book of stories. Noah gathers all the animals into the Ark two by two and the tortoise and a caterpiller are helped by a kangaroo. A child looks on while Judas betrays Christ. Salome dances for King Herod's drunken guests. St Paul returns to face trial and helps a centurion stay strong to survive a storm. Moses is discovered in the bullrushes and saved from certain death.






Retellings of well-known stories.









 You can buy this book straight from the publisher (Bridgehouse) or Waterstones and Smiths internet sites. It is worth reading











Glad to see the short story collections are out there. Lots of excellent stories, one for every mood you might be in. New talented authors with great style and most importantly - they write stories for the reader to enjoy not to impress with literary prowess. Recommended!

Other Ways of Being Now Out

"Other Ways of Being" is an anthology of stories that ask us many questions about:
•otherness: Is a stranger a threat or is he just trying to help? It may be as clever as being a fortune-teller but is it helpful?

•other times: Is the wild woman really a little girl that she used to know? Will they be safe now or should they worry about the bright soldiers marching? Which horror does the deep sleeper hide?

•other histories: Who was that strange child? How did they manage to feed so many people?

•other worlds: Can a couple remain together even when their natures threaten to keep them apart? Is a seemingly incompetent wizard cleverer than he seems? What happens when an alien makes a mistake and almost gives himself away? Do animals help each other in their struggle against the damage that humans are doing? Who exactly is the lady in blue? Is Bradley’s the best story ever?

•our near futures: Can a man survive in a dystopian future if he has no more human contact? What ca…

A collection of one hundred and ten pieces of flash-fiction and poetry. You probably won’t like all of them, and some of them might even disgust you, or make you uncomfortable. But stick with it. Look at overarching themes within each coloured block. Find the puns in certain titles. Research the colours that you’ve never heard of. Try and work out which stories are complete fabrications, which ones contain nuggets of truth,  and which ones are versions of real life events.
