Targeted Age Group:
How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
New collections of classic short stories appear infrequently and are not always well chosen or well edited. This book aims to fill that gap.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
David Pickering is a prolific author of both fiction and non-fiction. Other titles include ‘Classic Short Stories’, ‘Classic Ghost Stories’, Classic Horror Stories’, the novel ‘And Stones Shall Dance’ and ‘Things Lost and Other Stories’.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Having read much classic fiction, I wanted to share some of the gems among the hundreds of short stories I discovered. As well as the better-known stories, it remains a passion of mine to unearth great stories that may be less familiar to modern readers.
