The short stories and artwork included in this collection focus on the distorted and rearranged truths that we tell ourselves and others. What emerges from these pages is that loneliness is often the catalyst for how we reject or construct reality. In these stories, different considerations of loneliness are explored, and we get a sense of the solitude each one of us knows. The insightful writing that comprises this Fiction Annual captures the power that secrets and lies have in both the creation and destruction of the lives we build. By virtue of the mechanisms we rely on to elude, deflect and deny, we can find ourselves very alone in a world of our own design.
