PROCYON SHORT STORY ANTHOLOGY 2014

A short story in many ways is like a brief affair. Its very first words can intrigue with the potential to race both heart and imagination. It engages one quickly and then proceeds to ravish, terrify, stun, beguile or disabuse, as it reaches climax and as its denouement unfolds. One is left to ponder the glory, the irony, the horror or the mystery, which only time and reflection will make known. How was it for you?

We, at Tayen Lane, bring to you, for your enjoyment, our first annual Procyon Short Story Anthology for 2014. This collection features the works of thirty-three writers, from across the world, whose short stories span multiple genres, that range from drama to science fiction to fantasy to horror to romance.

The anthology thus represents a veritable "box of chocolates," as the reader will never quite know what they’ll get, until they’ve figuratively taken a bite. Whether one reads sequentially or randomly, a story per night, the 'chocolate' one picks, we believe, will intrigue, transport and in many cases amaze the senses.

Writers and the titles of their short stories can be found below.
