The anthology is an everything-goes collection featuring poetry, short-stories and several pieces inbetween. It has been described on Amazon, variously as:
” Vibrant, well written, interesting and thought provoking.”,
“A very diverse collection of short stories and poems from Northern writers.” and
“Alternately challenging, beautiful, funny, enlightening and disturbing. Well worth a read if you want an idea of what’s going on in Manchester writing at the moment. ”
Exciting news as Yappy The Happy Squirrel scurries its way into the newly released Bizarro Press anthology, Tall Tales With Short Cocks– available for a limited time only for 77p or $1.22- whichever you prefer. It promises “Zombies, clockworks, and rabies-infected assholes!” What’s not to like? ☭
