'A dazzling anthology uniting the written word with the visual' STEPHEN FRY

A Short Affair is a vibrant anthology that combines the best of original short fiction with remarkable work by contemporary artists from the Royal Academy Schools.

In this visually stunning collection from Pin Drop, the renowned short fiction and arts studio, Simon Oldfield brings together eighteen original short stories by giants of the form, alongside exciting new voices from the prestigious annual Pin Drop Short Story Award. With a foreword by Tim Marlow, Artistic Director of the Royal Academy of Arts, each story is accompanied by a unique artwork.

'Pin Drop is a wonderful and rare conception. The perfect antidote to the sound-bite culture' WILLIAM BOYD

“5/5”

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this collection of short stories. The inclusion of the artwork to accompany each short story added a impactful visual aide to the stories. Fantastic read.
