The series of "Challenged" anthologies have now reached their 9th, no less... this one, the second "Sensorially Challenged" collection, is a collection of 100 stories by 100 authors, after they were encouraged to be as florid and as purple as possible in their prose.
Pretty rule-breaking stuff, huh? But that, as ever, is the idea.
All proceeds are donated to The National Literacy Trust. Click through here to Chris Fielden's site, for details of where to buy in either paperback, or for your Kindle.
Earlier this month I had the pleasure of making my first visit, and performing my first live reading, at "Talking Tales", the regular storytelling evening in Bristol run by Stokes Croft Writers.
Here I am, reading "Beat the Brainbox", my mini-story which came runner up in the Fiction Desk Flash Fiction competition in 2015, and was subsequently published in their 10th anthology, Separations.
