AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The pathos and pointlessness of war, so evident in Russia’s war in Ukraine as it was those many years ago since 1914, resonate in Jeff Clulow’s ‘Rats Alley’. Herein the aftermath of the Great War ruptures society again when a soldier facing death in the trenches makes a dark bargain to save his life.'

    'From The Waste Land - stories inspired by T.S. Eliot's “The Waste Land” Plaintive ghosts, deep space, medieval castles, rising seas, parched deserts, abandoned villages…Inspired by its powerful themes—still highly resonant in an era looking for hope—nineteen original tales mark the centenary of Eliot’s poem. From the Waste Land brings together decorated writers and new voices in fantasy; ghost tales, horror, dystopia and science fiction. With a blend of the grotesque and the sublime, the poignant and the horrifying, the sad and the stoic, you’ll find stories that conjure wastelands from the 1500s to many centuries hence. You’ll also find the hope for humanity and the belief in our joint future that these writers seek for us all.'
