Reviews

Praise for Ox-Tales:'A fabulous insight into the literary landscape today

- Aesthetica

An admirable and ingenious idea... There are many gems... This collection disproves claims that the short story is on its last legs. It is also a rare treat to be able to read literature that literally improves the world

- Sebastian Shakespeare, Tatler

An excellent anthology

- Jake Kerridge, Daily Telegraph

A diverse, compelling collection of crime stories

- Good Housekeeping

Collections of crime short stories don't get any better than this

- Marcel Berlins, Times
