We’re thrilled to reveal the cover of the fifth anthology from Bath Flash Fiction Award published by Ad Hoc Fiction. The title, Restore to Factory Settings, is from a story by UK writer, J A Keogh and is the last story printed in the book. We thank him very much for the inspiration. Previously, our covers have featured an Art Deco style plait, lobsters, an echo of the Highway Code in the UK, the head of a wonderful cow and we think this might be our favourite cover yet, again designed by Ad Hoc Fiction.
The book, of course, is also amazing inside with 136 stories from the three 2020 Awards, the selections by our three judges, Santino Prinzi, Mary Jane Holmes and Nod Ghosh at the beginning of the book and our editor’s choices,the rest of the longlisted stories arranged after these. Such a wonderful variety of flash fictions to read.
Restore to Factory Settings will be released on Friday 4th December and available to buy from Ad Hoc Fiction and Amazon in paperback and ebook formats. Complementary copies will be posted to all the authors who have stories in the book.There are many countries represented in the anthology and we hope writers will send pictures of them in their different locations when they arrive. It is always really fun to see those pictures. We’ll make a New Year’s Gallery and hope they will all get to their destinations by January 1st.
Our 17th Award is judged by Charmaine Wilkerson and closes February 7th. Earlybird reduced cost entries are available until December 13th. Buy now and enter later for a chance of being in our 2021 anthology.
