Poignant, bleak, funny and fervent, the short stories, artwork and photography included in At Bay Press’s latest anthology illustrate the various implications of love gone awry. The 2013 Fiction Annual is comprised of thoughtful writing about contempt, regret and emancipation that touches the hearts of all readers who have loved and lost. The art and photography are included to support the storytelling but nonetheless stand on their own as fine examples of the theme ‘Jilted Love’. Proudly printed in Canada, this collection features the work of new writers and artists as well masters from the past century, arranged based on a timeless theme.
