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?
No. 2 – Waiting 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.
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
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.
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.
No. 6 – Remnants, 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.
