empAn Earthless Melting Pot

Twenty-five prize-winning short stories from the Words with Jam 2012 BIGGER Short Story Competition. Judged by writing tutor and author Zoë Fairbairns, best-selling novelist and television producer Jane Fallon and music journalist and novelist Benjamin Myers, this collection represents a cross section of up-and-coming talent whose writing will leave you wanting more. Meet the man who is trying to breed a black tiger – at the expense of his family; share the sorrow of a young Indian boy in a New York sweatshop; the worry of a dim young shopgirl who suspects her boyfriend’s father is having an affair; and the hopes of the emotionally damaged staff working in a laboratory that’s trying to clone beefsteaks. Gems like these are interspersed with lyrical pieces of flash fiction that make full use of every word – because in the end, that’s what defines a short story – a tale that’s told as succinctly, effectively and precisely as words will allow.
