2020. We won’t remember you fondly, but you do mark something of a milestone for the sassy souls over at Rushmoor Writers.
For the past 25550 days, this eclectic bunch have been delving into the dark, provocative, funny, horrific and frivolous recesses of their imagination, conjuring up stories about the good, the bad, the ugly—and everything in between. The second-oldest writers’ group in the UK, Rushmoor Writers are proud to have created an entire generation’s worth of tales to tickle fancies and satiate curiosities.
In this celebratory collection by seasoned and award-winning novelists and short story scribes, you can find stories of love, loss, lockdown, dragons, abandoned houses, dead people, mystical crystals, rebellions in the supermarket and vanishing numbers. And in all, there’s a thing about seventy.
