This anthology of Welsh short stories offers a chronological overview of the form in Wales during the last century. Twenty-five English-language writers provide one story each to produce an entertaining and varied anthology. Tales of horror, satire, humor, war, the aristocracy, love, madness, industry, the countryside, politics, and sport are all covered. The styles are varied, from the lyrical to the grittily realistic, as are the settings, from Wales in the early 20th century to contemporary South Africa. Contributors include Dannie Abse, Glenda Beagan, Ron Berry, Duncan Bush, Brenda Chamberlain, Rhys Davies, Dorothy Edwards, Caradoc Evans, George Ewart Evans, Margiad Evans, Sian Evans, Geraint Goodwin, Nigel Heseltine, Richard Hughes, Emyr Humphreys, Glyn Jones, Gwyn Jones, Alun Lewis, Clare Morgan, Leslie Norris, Ifan Pughe, Alun Richards, Jaci Stephen, Dylan Thomas, and Gwyn Thomas.
