Exiles: An Outsider Anthology reviewed at Crimepieces

Over at Crimepieces, Sarah Ward says: ‘Collecting the stories around an overarching theme was an excellent idea for this book. It gave the collection a homogenous feel but allowed the writers to express their individual styles within the narratives. The stories are fairly short but many are powerful. And it’s allowed me to discover newContinue reading “Exiles: An Outsider Anthology reviewed at Crimepieces”

Exiles Guest Blog:How I Wrote ‘Eating the Dream’ by K. A. Laity

I’m trying to remember where this story came from. I know the title came first, but not really because before that came William Blake and the Red Dragon, but before that came Springsteen and songs of escape, but even before that came cars. I grew up in a factory town where automobiles were the trade.Continue reading “Exiles Guest Blog:How I Wrote ‘Eating the Dream’ by K. A. Laity”

Exiles Guest Blog: How I got to The Place of the Dead by Nick Sweeney

The Djma el Fnaa is Marakech’s central square. By a linguistic quirk, its name can be translated as either ‘the Mosque of Nowhere / Nothing’ or ‘the Place / Assembly of the Dead’. It was too good a title not to use for a story, and several people have indeed beaten me to it inContinue reading “Exiles Guest Blog: How I got to The Place of the Dead by Nick Sweeney”

Exiles Guest Blog: Alienation by Richard Godwin

The road is a pretty malleable image. My story is about exile that is both imposed and the result of trying not to be a prisoner of alienation. Don is a criminal with a poetic vision. He belongs in a Jean Genet novel, a man with a massive rose beating in his troubled heart. TheContinue reading “Exiles Guest Blog: Alienation by Richard Godwin”

My story in the EXILES  anthology is “Midnight Train to Delhi.” Unlike most of my stories, this one is based on a specific experience. My wife, Melanie, and I have lived in India for the last two years. (This is the first story I’ve written that’s set here.) We traveled around the country in theContinue reading “Exiles Guest Post: Midnight Train to Delhi by Chris Rhatigan”

Exiles Guest Blog: Pacific Coast Highway by James A. Newman

The story behind Pacific Coast Highway is quite simple. My friend literary critic and blogger Kevin Cummings would often tell me these stories that related back to his youth back in the States, we were both transplanted to Bangkok – Him from California, me from just outside London. We’d both been living in the FarContinue reading “Exiles Guest Blog: Pacific Coast Highway by James A. Newman”
