Safe World Gone
Edited by Janet Thomas, Patricia Dunker
It all started so harmlessly...
What would it take to change your world? Could you talk to a stranger, knock on your neighbour's door, revisit an old lover or take a new one, find out who your father was, buy a magic potion, break into a house, get revenge?
These stories all hinge on the turning point - the moment when everything changes. The moment someone said yes - or said no - reached out to another person, took the thing they most wanted, set off round the world.
This exciting, diverse anthology - including work by Patricia Dunker, Jenny Sullivan, Sarah Jackman, Jo Verity, Lara Clough and Ruth Joseph - is funny, shocking, angry and heartbreaking, but in all the stories the safe world was gone...
