The fourth anthology from the North Bristol Writers examines our relationship with Fire. With over twenty tales from writers such as Chrissey Harrison, Dev Agarwal, Pete Sutton, Maria Herring, M E Rodman, Kevin McCabe, Ken Shinn, Scott Lewis, Nick Walters and more as well as poetry from Barry Hollow and Kimberly Nugent.
Fire holds a unique place in the human psyche, deeply
intertwining fear and fascination. From the entrancing
flicker of a candle flame to the raw, elemental fury of a
forest fire, Fire gives and takes away. We speak of it as
alive and sentient – a fire can roar, leap, spit, even die. We
even talk to it sometimes, feed and care for it like a child,
until we think we understand it. But while we may bend
it to our will for a time, such an abstract and unknowable
force can never be entirely tamed – From the Introduction, bt Chrissey Harrison.
