    Short stories have always been a sort of instant access into an author’s brain, their soul and heart.  A few pages can lift our lives into locations, people and experiences with a sweep of landscape, narration, feelings and emotions that is difficult to achieve elsewhere. 
     
    In this series we try to offer up tried and trusted ‘Top Tens’ across many different themes and authors. But any anthology will immediately throw up the questions – Why that story? Why that author?  
     
    The theme itself will form the boundaries for our stories which range from well-known classics, newly told, to stories that modern times have overlooked but perfectly exemplify the theme.  Throughout the volume our authors whether of instant recognition or new to you are all leviathans of literature. 
     
    Some you may disagree with but they will get you thinking; about our choices and about those you would have made.  If this volume takes you on a path to discover more of these miniature masterpieces then we have all gained something. 
     
    It may well be that Empire has raised generations of its Nation’s kin abroad.  And some, born abroad, adopted England as their home in preference to their own.  For both this lure of ‘Home’ has nourished their ambition whilst all around them stories are to be found that they, with their unique outsider’s view, can create and deliver to our ears their literary masterpieces.

    A mesmerizing new novella and stories from National Book Award winner Lily TuckA provocative and haunting new collection from critically acclaimed writer Lily Tuck, Heathcliff Redux, A Novella and Stories explores, with cool precision, the hidden dynamics and unspoken conflicts at the heart of human relationships.In the novella, a married woman reads Wuthering Heights at the same time that she falls under the erotic and destructive spell of her own Heathcliff. In the stories that follow, a single photograph illuminates the intricate web of connections between friends at an Italian café; a forgotten act of violence in New York's Carl Schurz Park returns to haunt the present; and a woman is prompted by a flurry of mysterious emails to recall her time as a member of the infamous Rajneesh cult.With keen psychological insight and delicate restraint, Heathcliff Redux, A Novella and Stories pries open the desires, doubts, and secret motives of its characters and exposes their vulnerabilities to the light. Sharp and unflinching, the novella and stories together form an exquisitely crafted collection from one of our most treasured, award-winning writers.Contains mature themes.

    On the shores of Lake Como a man and a woman talk about longing and belongingl; a translator finds himself drawn into the personal and political turmoil of the poet he translates; a woman's quiet world is eroded by World War II and the division of her country. Charting the geographies of leave-taking and homecoming, the consolations and rivalries of friendship, adolescent yearnings and maturity's tentative acceptance of longing, these exquisite stories engage with the grand narratives of our time. 'Both disconcerting and alluring...the further the reader travels into Hussein's landscape of erosion, the more potent his capacity to find beauty becomes.' Times Literary Supplement 'Profound but low key; spiritual, but pragmatic; full of longing, but also acceptance.' Independent on Sunday 'Emotionally as well as intellectually charged.' New Statesman 'Hauntingly convincing.' The Daily Telegraph 'Lovely short stories...sharp, bitter, subtle comedy.' The Times 'Fresh, personal and profoundly moving.' Kamila Shamsie, Literary Review 'Superbly written short fiction...the writing is both delicate and powerful: these are very fine stories indeed.' Independent 'A gem-like collection...Aamer Hussein is a consummate stylist...His prose is restrained, precise and yet deeply moving. He is a sensuous writer in whose stories nature acts as a balm on even the most weary of sensibilities.' Moni Mohsin, Literary Review 'Profound, beautiful' Ruth Padel 'Wonderfully evocative and readable' Kate Pullinger

    Tales of “fearlessly offbeat” horror from the author of Lost Souls and Exquisite Corpse (Locus).   Poppy Z. Brite, an acclaimed horror fan favorite, is known for going to the edge and back—and this collection of stories, many set against the backdrop of the author’s native New Orleans, explores the outermost regions of murder, sex, death, and religion.   Featuring titles such as “In Vermis Veritas,” “Entertaining Mr. Orton,” and “Mussolini and the Axeman’s Jazz,” as well as collaborations with Christa Faust and David Ferguson, this volume also offers notes on each story by the author, an introduction by #1 NewYork Times–bestselling author Peter Straub, and an afterword by Caitlín R. Kiernan. Are You Loathsome Tonight? is an edgy, gruesome tour of “the darkness at the heart of things [with] a number of superb stories, powerful in style and characters” (Locus).
