Caravan Thieves (Short Story Collection) – Gerard Woodward

Rather than a single short story, here is a collection of stories by author Gerard Woodward. This is his first collection published in 2008. His latest collection, Legoland, is out now. I don’t have a link to one of the stories to read, but I urge you to pick up the book if you can – a consistently good read. Don’t just believe me though:


“There is a quietly under-stated malevolence at play in this series of short stories. The apparently mundane, even banal, comes to life with the slightest twitch of a reveal. It is this underlying darkness that gives these stories their potent mix of charm and intrigue. The power of suggestion is ever present and is handled masterfully leaving the reader with ample room for interpretation. Woodward writes with a willingness to let the reader do at least some of the work for themselves – making this an ultimately rewarding collection to read.”
