From suburbia and skyscraper scrawl to the open prairies and 'local color', slum life to rural idyll: reprinting American and British literary classics.
Batches of (usually two or three) short stories in C6 format paperback with bright sparky colours, at £1.50 each, to be available only in the Sandspout Bookstore.
These pocket sized books are chosen as ideal introductory reads to the authors represented. The short story was in the ascendant in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, an ideal literary fodder for the clamouring, expectant magazine market. These books are for sale only through this website or in The Sandspout Bookstore in Dolgellau, Gwynedd, where it is rumoured that you can get a copy for free if you buy a pot of leaf tea.
