Best of British Fantasy 2019 (edited) by Jared Shurin

Limited Edition $40.00

Editor Jared Shurin has determined to uncover the very best work published by British and British-based authors in 2019, ending up with as diverse and surprising a set of stories as you are likely to find anywhere. Full of wonder, wit, delight and malevolence. These stories range from traditional to contemporary fantasy, written by a mix of established authors and new voices, combining to provide a veritable potpourri of the fantastical.

"Each story brings its own escape, a release from the worst of our everyday... this is the kind of anthology you approach with curiosity, not knowledge. And that’s the best kind of read." -- Aurealis
