It was the summer of 1974, and we were camping near a small village called Kefken on the Black Sea in Turkey, when we were first invited to share…

I have a bit of a creative crush on Alfindy Agyputri. She made the short films for Shibboleth and other stories, you see, and they’re very good. To think that someone, somewhere will get to work with her and help her visions come to life gives me hope in all kinds of things. You can’t […]
Who Are Your Writing For? By Kate_Glenister A few months ago, I was casually browsing through Readings in Carlton when I unexpectedly spotted copies of Shibboleth & Other Stories on the shelf.
