      AN ARMFUL OF SOULFUL STORIES

      It’s easy to be sceptical of anthologies, not only for their unevenness but also for their tendencies to veer towards that comfortable middle-brow commercialism. This book however, bought impulsively and solely off the recommendation of a friend, was a surprising exception.

      ‘Icarus’ is the stand-out story here. The Avishek Parui tale takes a centuries old Greek tragedy and gives it a refreshingly contemporary makeover. I loved the story for the quality of its prose, its specificity and under...

      Very nice concept by National Story Contest. Gives the readers access to fresh concept and ideas. Some of the authors are really good and will look forward to reading books/stories by them. My pick Blackberry notes and Dinner Conversations.

      must read

      First of all thanks to Flipkart for delivering
      this book in time. Seems like first time in
      India someone has used QR codes in fiction
      books. The book quality is awesome; very
      fine offset printing. 21 stories for INR 160 is
      a great deal. Stories are entertaining and
      enjoyable. Some stories have got awesome
      twists and turns. Definitely worth reading.
      Amazing concept by Pomegranate. Would like
      to recommend it to everyone. This book can
      also
