About the books:
Best British Short Stories 2022 – edited by Nicholas Royle
The nation’s favourite annual guide to the short story, now in its twelfth year.
Best British Short Stories invites you to judge a book by its cover – or, more accurately, by its title. This critically acclaimed series aims to reprint the best short stories published in the previous calendar year by British writers, whether based in the UK or elsewhere. The editor’s brief is wide ranging, covering anthologies, collections, magazines, newspapers and web sites, looking for the best of the bunch to reprint all in one volume.

This new Salt series showcases contemporary short story writers born, or working in, the British Isles. Beautiful paperback originals in A format, pocket editions, with classic Salt covers, that will form a must-have set for all story enthusiasts and book collectors.
