The REAL STORY Manifesto

Writing about the stories shortlisted for the BSFA Award got me thinking about what I enjoy most in a story, especially short stories. So I wrote the Real Story Manifesto.

Okay, so partly it’s an attempt to write down what Greyhart Press is about (that’s a publishing venture I shall be launching presently). But there’s more. When I’ve shared top-rank genre fiction to friends who regard themselves as lovers of Sci Fi and fantasy (through games, TV and film), they are often left scratching their heads in confusion. I suspect that under the constant pressure to avoid repetition and the desire for critical acceptance, the top-flight genre magazines encourage storytelling in a direction that is inaccessible to most ‘normal’ people.

What do you think?
