The print versions are a limited edition but the on-line version will be viewable here on our launch day: Thursday 4th June. Not to be missed, it is ‘a collection of stories to consider and enjoy, each different, each demonstrating the kind of boldness and ambition that should find their authors many readers in the years to come’ says Luke Williams. They include a ‘strange and darkly comic exploration of identity in contemporary New York… a pitch-perfect slice of Japanese noir… an unexpectedly charming story of would-be murders… there are births and origins here too…’. Ten authors, ten excellent pieces of contemporary fiction. We are absolutely delighted to be about to introduce these writers to their new audience.
This year, we have decided to post previews of our authors’ contributions to tempt you. Take a look atA taste of 44 Square fiction 2015by clicking on this title in the menu bar. As an added bonus, you will see who is writing!

His words offer another hint of what is to be published on 4th June 2015, describing the work as: ‘a magnificent’ and ‘inventive’ collection of stories.
