I was thrilled to be asked to read and review this anthology of short stories by various authors. The authors have gifted their time and talent to contribute to the anthology in aid of the Lymphoma Association UK, a very worthy cause. The book will be launched in Sheffield on 21st October as part of the Off The Shelf Literature Festival. If you are in the area please be sure to check out the festival. OUT VERY SOON IN PAPERBACK!

'Watch & Wait' is the 'watchword' for those undergoing treatment for lymphoma, the world's most common form of blood cancer. It is also the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer amongst young people. Through this anthology, we hope to raise awareness of this indiscriminate disease.

All proceeds from this anthology (at least £2 per copy) are gifted directly to The Lymphoma Association UK (Registered Charity No. 1068395) by the authors and publisher.

Time... This strangely amorphous substance that we have in seeming abundance...
These twenty authors have given of it freely. Their gifted stories are eclectic, strangely familiar or great and good fun, often weirdly nostalgic in ways that will question your perception but all, without exception, are of the highest quality.
In here, household names and major prize-winners rub shoulders with those who soon will be...
So just... 'Watch & Wait', along with:
Angela Robson, Berlie Doherty, Bill Allerton, Bryony Doran, Caroline Pitcher, Danuta Reah, David Swann, Henry Shukman, Ian McMillan, Jemma Kennedy, Judith Allnatt, Julia South, Kirstin Zhang, Lesley Glaister, Linda Lee Welch, Marina Lewycka, Rony Robinson, Ruth Valentine, Susan Elliot Wright and Ursula Stickland.

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a total sucker for short stories. Anthologies tempt me in with the promise of a lovely story that I will have time to devour in my busy life and be left with that lovely literature glow that one experiences when all bookish needs have been met. Watch and Wait contains such short stories. There is a wealth of talent amongst the pages of this book and each author brings their own unique talents that all tie together to produce this wonderful anthology. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it not only for the wonderfully diverse range of excellently written stories but also because of the great cause it supports. Highly recommended.*Version*=1&*entries*=0
