STORIES WHICH APPEARED DURING SEPTEMBER 2010


1 NICHOLAS HOGG - PICNIC

Maybe you've wondered why we're in the middle of a decade-long slog of a war, and maybe you've read the newspaper or that wikileaks database and felt like you wanted a bit more for the senses. This one will help fill in the gaps. A woman goes missing in Afghanistan, and her captors propose a meal.





2 EMER O'TOOLE - AQUAMARINE

There are times when a place is just off, and there are moods that not even an intense redecoration project can lift. Fresh from a breakup, a woman grasps the joys of living alone and the terrors of a brand new colour.



3 ROSIE ADAMS - POCAHONTAS

There's something about supermarkets, the lighting, the stacks of goods that are never quite lined up as perfectly as they are in advertisements. In this remarkable story, an odd girl attaches herself to a random shopper.



4 MARK PIGGOTT - MEAT CITY

Ever hear a story and get the feeling that the author has gotten in way over his head? That he now knows way more than he should? And you kind of fear for him a bit? This is one of those. Mark told us this one outside a pub on the Holloway Road. When a man emerges from a bender, he finds the toughest man in the toughest city in the toughest … well you get the point.



5 GAVIN INGLIS - 100% POSITIVE FEEDBACK

If we've learned anything from the internet it's about the sheer volume of stuff that's out there, the millions of things people are trying to flog. I mean, with so much junk, a lot of it has just got to be dodgy. In this hilariously dark piece, a chat about a macabre online hobby takes an unfortunate turn.
