An Outbreak Of Peace

I have a story, The Man Who Left, in An Outbreak Of Peace: Stories and poems in response to the end of WWI, a new anthology of short stories commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war.

“November 2018 marks the centenary of the end of World War I. After all the commemorative works of art over the past four years, we felt it was important to reflect on what comes after – an outbreak of peace, and what that meant to the combatants and those left at home. This wide-ranging collection brings together stories and poems from many countries, on both sides of the 1914-18 conflict, finding their inspiration in many wars and their endings; together with stories and poems which are not about war at all, which is as it should be.”

There are two launch events for the book, one in London on November 14th (Housmans Bookshop, King’s Cross, 7pm), and one in Manchester on November 30th (Blackwells bookshop, near the Arthur Lewis Building at The University of Manchester, 6:30pm).



1. An Outbreak Of Peace is published by Arachne Press, and is released on the 8th November, 2018.
2. And is available in paperback and ebook formats.
3. I also had a story, The King And The Light, in Liberty Tales, another anthology from the same publisher, which was published in 2016.
