Woops! Meet Tania …

I thought I'd included all of our accomplished writers of Slightly Peculiar Short Stories, but Tania Hershman of the UK slipped under the radar. (Sorry, Tania!) In fact it's a treat to have four of Tania's stories in this collection; four complex, piquant mouthfuls that keep you savouring them for a while.

Here's Tania last Saturday, talking about short stories at the first short story festival in Bristol, ShortstoryVille.

Tania's first book, The White Road and Other Stories, (Salt Modern Fiction, 2008), was commended in the 2009 Orange Award for New Writers. Tania is Grand Prize Winner of the 2009 Binnacle Ultra-Short Contest, and European winner of the 2008 Commonwealth Broadcasting Association's Short Story competition.  

She's currently writer-in-residence in Bristol University's Science Faculty and has just been awarded an Arts Council England grant to work on a collection of biology-inspired short fiction. She blogs about writing at TaniaWrites.

Yes, we're still on track to release Slightly Peculiar Short Stories at 5.30 NZ standard time, today.
