"During the Black Plague of the 14th century, Giovanni Boccaccio wrote The Decameron, a collection of 100 stories that provided a literary escape from the pandemic. In that spirit, Muskeg Press has published this anthology of 10 short stories by writers from Canada, India, Ireland and Scotland. They may have been written during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, but that's never mentioned in these stories. Instead, you'll find tales of adventure, of strange love, of myth and legend, of technological obsessions, of people who escape their past and people who are trapped by it. At the very least, we hope these stories give you a bit of a break from the news of COVID-19."-- from publisher.
