Short Stories by David Almond
Publication date: May 2013
David Almond is now known around the world as the author of the novels Skellig, Kit's Wilderness and The Savage. His first two books - Sleepless Nights (1985) and A Kind of Heaven (1997) - were published by Iron Press. A selection of these short stories for adults appear in Nesting alongside two previously unpublished tales. The stories draw deeply from the Tyneside estate of Almond's childhood, exploring the themes that would inform his later work, and displaying all the rhythm, lyricism and drive for which he is acclaimed today.

- Short stories by Kitty Fitzgerald
Publication date: June 2013
From savage fairies to temptation, murder and snooping, via the hunted, suspicious neighbours and the photographer who saw too much, these provocative and richly conceived stories do what stories should do: tell a strong, engaging tale.
Who is the strange wino with the voice of an angel? Why does nobody go in or out of the Faulkner's house? What is Alice Noonan's secret? Within these pages you'll find love, loss, revenge, redemption and vivid characters you'll not forget in a hurry.
Kitty Fitzgerald has published four novels, including her latest, the much heralded Pigtopia (Faber) translated into more than twenty languages. She was runner-up in the Barnes & Noble Discover New Writers' Awards in 2006. She also writes screenplays, radio drama and for the theatre. This is her first collection of short stories.
