  A continuing response by writers to the Covid19 pandemic in 2020 and during the ongoing aftershocks in 2021. This collection is of work by writers we have published before and whom we trust, and their trusted colleagues. When disasters strike writers respond and react in words. They share with us their hopes and fears. They describe and rationalise.  Like its companion book this volume contains pieces of fiction, flash fiction, script, poetry, memoir and some texts which cannot easily be categorised.               There is a loose chronology here – the texts are listed by the order in which they were written and / or by the times to which they refer.
