TSS Chapbooks, Series One


No. 1 –  A Flood in the Yucatán, by Sean Lusk

‘In his evocative story, Sean Lusk explores the relationship between language and culture. How much of ourselves do we give away when we share the words that define our world?’ Adam Marek

No. 2Waiting for the Runners, by Chloe Turner 

‘I was struck by the vivid tones and the warm heartbeat at the centre of this weighted story, the skilled and subtle act of revelation.’ Catherine Mcnamara

No. 3 The Tip, by Matthew G. Rees 

‘As a poisoned love letter to both Russia and Russian culture, this is a short Gogol-esque masterpiece of absurdity, black comedy and fear’ Alan Bilton

No. 4 Out to Wreck, by Conor O’Sullivan

‘An impressive snapshot of a curdled night, ‘Out to Wreck’ is a ferocious volley of punches that doesn’t let up. Conor O’Sullivan’s roar is constant, engaging and unsettling, and the resulting intensity the tale’s uncomfortable charm.’ Sean Preston

No. 5 Waiting for the Rat, by Megan Taylor 

‘Airbnb reinvented by Freud. In an apartment-hire nightmare of noise, colour and secret rooms, Taylor’s protagonist discovers you can’t tale a holiday from your own life.’ Nicholas Royle.

No. 6Remnants, Christopher M. Drew

This is a visceral story, told with punchy, muscled writing. There’s an underlying delicacy to the relationship between father and son, and a poignant sense of growth. C. G. Menon
