Riptide Volume 5

An anthology of stories edited by

Riptide Volume 5, guest-edited by Jane Feaver contains 16 new stories, each in some way concerned with flight: Flight in the sense of aeroplanes, flight in the sense of escape, flight in the sense of fancy: journeys, evasion, invention.

Robert Shearman's 'Coming in to Land' kicks off the collection with a surreal take on faith and flight paths. In 'Cafe Bohemia' Alison MacLeod's 'strikingly original voice' (The Guardian) takes us into an unsettling world of limitless rooms and Adam Marek brings his 'genuine, unsettling talent' (The Independent) to the streets of Cambridge, teeming with dead alumni.

Luke Kennard has written a thought-provoking introduction to this collection which also contains stories by Ginny Baily, Jane Rogers, Jane Rusbridge, Matt Thorne, Jenny Newman, Sally Flint, Jo Lloyd, Nicholas Royle, Zoe Teale, Wena Poon. Karen Stevens, Eleanor Knight and Alison Napier.
