Shuffle celebrates the theme of sound: from the streets of Rome at night; the personification of ice cubes; David Bowie; Mad Max; a chainsaw; fish flops and tiny pikelets, to a conversation through a thin wall; silence and sign language. The microlit references sound in a plethora of unexpected ways; putting the short form under pressure to showcase each writer’s unique abstractions.

'Songs, symphonies in miniature, fireworks: Shuffle is a collection that enthrals, illuminates, and moves to a magical — and often — cheeky beat.' — Nigel Featherstone, Bodies of Men

'A collection that is evocative, vivid and, above all, inspiring. This is a fantastic source book for new approaches to form in the realms of both prose poetry and short short fiction.' — Ivy Ireland
