We might have made better decisions if we’d only had more time. Maybe more time would have been all we needed to love them right. More time could have fixed our mistakes. More time might have only made things worse. And even when the measure of time itself is altogether powerless, love will inevitably find us and leave us in so many more ways.
In this short fiction anthology, a global collection of rising talents explore the connection between love and time. Their stories will take us from cancer wards, to small town bakeries. From retirement communities, to parkade rooftops, to paranormal phone booths. Love will bloom beneath meteor showers, endure through the magic of mythical creatures, and elude us within the veils of memory. These twelve tales touch on the supernatural, the psychological, and secrets just beneath the surface, teasing our vulnerabilities. Eventually, love may end up being defined by nothing more than a pair of men’s slippers, a pilfered hoodie, or a body on the sidewalk.
And in all of these stories, one question could be asked: What if we had More Time?
Featuring stories by Eloise Archer, Ioanna Arka, Emma Deshpande, Zev Good, R. Tim Morris, Natalie Pinter, Justine Rosenberg, Chet Sandberg, Abby Simpson, Isana Skeete, Lior Torenberg, and Perry Wolfecastle.
