Late Night River Lights –
Collected Stories / Collected Authors

Late at night darkness is punctuated by stars;
the river, by lights. Gathered from around the
world, EditRED’s second collection has
twenty-three new stories by the emerging
lights in contemporary short fiction.

Contemplative, reflective, and disruptive these
dark modern tales shine out of the shadows to
flicker across continents. Their messages ripple
like morse code mirrored on water, moving
upstream and cast over oceans.
Decipher their meaning.
