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 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!

Is Bradley’s the best story ever?

 Twenty-seven tales of betrayal and loss, of dreams and hopes, of lovers, liars and cheats. Stories with a strong sense of place, transporting us from the seashore to the city, from India's monsoon to the heat of Cuba, and from the supermarket aisle to a Catalonian fiesta. We meet a baby that never existed, a car called Marilyn, a one-eyed cat, and a boy whose kisses taste of dunked biscuits.
