25 Years in the Word Mines

(2014)
The Best of Graham Joyce
A collection of stories by

 
 
Twenty five years ago Graham Joyce and his wife Sue left the grey skies of England to live by the sea on a Greek Island. As an unpublished writer he had gone there to live in isolation to write. After the hoards of uninvited summer visitors left he was finally able to fulfil his ambition and so started a writing career. Some of the stories contained in this collection were written in Greece under a vine canopy with light from a hurricane lamp. Others were inspired by travels around neighbouring islands.

This collection represents a gathering of the best Graham Joyce short stories written since his stay in Greece. Settings vary from the mines of the East Midlands to the lonely landscape of the Norfolk Coast and to the frozen streets of Leningrad during WWII.

Included with this collection is a foreword by Owen King and an afterword by Kelly Braffet, as well as an individual commentary on each story by the author.
