Staying indoors? Want it NOW and for less?
A fourth collection of tales from the OxPens writers with intrigues set in Oxford coffee shops and colleges, the old Jewish Quarter and, further afield, at Henley Regatta and the ruined hall at Minster Lovell. Experience Matilda’s escape from Oxford Castle, go back to Victorian school days where a lesson in life has to be learned, follow the strange happenings on Platform 3 and discover who the chocolate people were… In the pages of this anthology, you will find suspense, whimsy, love and intrigue, and even a touch of fear.
In the third anthology, The Bodleian Murders, there was a preoccupation with grisly ends, but our authors are showing their gentler sides this time with some of the 16 stories in The Midnight Press focusing on romance and love, requited and unrequited.
Short stories by Chris Blount, Angela Cecil Reid, Gina Claye, Sheila Costello, Liz Harris, Alison Hoblyn, Linora Lawrence, John Kitchen, Radmila May, Ben McSeoin, Rosie Orr, Ray Peirson, Margaret Pelling, Heather Rosser, Jane Stemp, Sylvia Vetta
“These delightful short stories are a perfect way to celebrate Oxford”
