TSFG member Mick Scully has a story – The Sea in Birmingham – included in this collection of the best short stories of the year. Well done Mick.
Of course the story was also the title story for our recent anthology celebrating 30 years of TSFG.
Mick’s success is the third story from TSFG members to feature in these annual anthologies. The first one in 2011 had a story from Alan Beard, and in the 2012 collection there was one from Joel Lane.
Following his short story collection ‘Little Moscow’ TSFG member Mick Scully’s first novel ‘The Norway Room’ will be launched on March 13th 2014 at Waterstones in Birmingham at 7:00pm. Flyer above. See you there!
