Reverse Engineering will be of huge interest to both practitioners and fans of the short story and to anyone interested in how art gets made. An anthology to inspire and encourage anyone who reads it.
Colin Barrett, author of Young Skins and Homesickness
Reverse Engineering is an invaluable trove of stories and interviews. A delightful, rousing resource.
Eley Williams, author of Attrib. And Other Stories
Imagine being able to ask some of the short story’s top practitioners why they did this, what made them do that, and what on earth was going on here? If, like me, you think the short story is the greatest literary form, you will welcome this book, which subjects it to the level of scrutiny it deserves.’
Nicholas Royle, editor of The Best British Short Stories series
