Book: Curtain Call
Publishers: Half Baked Beans.
Compiled & Edited by: Rafaa Dalvi
Format Available: Print ( Amazon )
Curtain Call is an upcoming anthology releasing in August 2016. Featuring some of the best names in contemporary short fiction in India, the anthology chooses to avoid the traditional route of sticking to a single theme, providing the reader with something different to look forward to within each tale.
From historical fiction to romance, horror and humour, there is something for everyone in this collection.
So what makes this posse different from the other collections of short stories available presently?
Simply a matter of class, really.
Between the 20 who have contributed here, you have authors with not 1 or 2 or even 10 or 20 published stories in their combined quiver. You have a whopping 75 published short stories (both Indian & International) and no less than 13 published novels between these authors. That is talent that has gone through literally more than hundreds of short story contests, honing their skills through both success & failure till they got the art of storytelling down to a science.
One of the common issues that people have when it comes to buying an anthology collection is that they don't get to know what the stories are all about. How can you decide if you don't know what is in the package you are expected to buy?
We hear you.
Which is why with Curtain Calls, the authors decided to give previews of ALL the stories so that you, the reader, can make an informed decision for yourselves. So without any further delay, allow me to present to you the stories and genres you will get with Curtain Calls.
