Happy Christmas from Pangea

196751077441943915_oaDlcyrP_bFor twelve days from 25 December, the Pangea anthology will cost just 99p for Kindle. Enjoy!

With stories by twenty-five writers from thirteen countries, Pangea, (meaning ‘all lands’ or ‘all earth’) features diverse and distinctive voices; quiet voices, brave voices, tender voices, and haunting voices. The authors include journalists, scientists, a lawyer, a costume designer, a crofter in the Scottish highlands, a writer-in-residence at a young offenders’ prison, and many more. Their stories range from the raw intensity of a man’s failure on a road in Scotland to the dramatic preparations for a big birthday party in Nigeria, or the moment a young man comes face-to-face with his Bollywood idol.
