Shadow Publishing is proud to announce a major anthology of new stories, edited by Allen Ashley, to be published Autumn 2015. Allen says, "What is this lingering fear of insects, arachnids, arthropods, crustaceans and those that slither? Is it a hangover from the survival battles in the savannah or does it go deeper and further back than that in our evolutionary heritage? Does the highly regulated ant society represent a worrying paradigm of a potential human future? Unchallenged, the locusts, the maggots, the worms, the flies, the aphids and the termites may consume and destroy all that we have and hold dear. In a subtler way, we think we are in control of the Earth but the insect class are the great survivors biding their time and, whilst they are playing the long game, perhaps they are also manipulating us for their own inscrutable purposes".
Latest accepted stories by: Storm Constantine, Andrew Hook,Terry Grimwood, Pauline E. Dungate, Adrian Cole, David Rix, Gary Budgen and David Turnbull.
