Short Story Press Presents A Serious Matter by Virlanda Miller When wronged, is it better to seek revenge or to forgive? A Serious Matter describes the efforts of two long-lost childhood friends, Jeannie and Violet, to come to terms with their hatred of a mutual, unnamed enemy. • Jeannie already has a restraining order against the man, her estranged husband who previously tried to kill her. • The same man also killed Violet’s fiancé in a drunk-driving accident on Violet’s wedding day and feels no remorse. Jeannie learns about the accident and reaches out to Violet at the funeral, rekindling their friendship. • When Jeannie and Violet learn the man is being released from jail after serving only a few months of his jail sentence, they decide justice has not been served and they have to create a plan of vigilante revenge. • When their murder-for-hire plan does not execute in the way they had envisioned, their lives are changed forever. Short Story Press publishes short stories written by everyday writers.

A young boy takes delight in his mother’s ability to shapeshift from one animal to another, only realising how odd she is when it comes to parents’ evening . . . The values of a small farming village are challenged by talk of a well-heeled community living on the other side of the lake that only one person can see . . . A writer researching the life of a 19th century child custody reformer discovers all too many parallels between that century and ours . . . The stories shortlisted for the 2019 BBC National Short Story Award with Cambridge University variously explore the sanctity of the home and family, and the instinct to defend what’s closest to us. Against a backdrop of danger or division, characters sometimes struggle – like the 15-year-old charged with looking after her siblings whilst her mother works through the night – and sometimes succumb – like the young woman who allows herself to be manipulated by an older, richer man. But in each case, these stories demonstrate what Nikki Bedi argues in her introduction: short stories are not a warm-up act, they’re the main event.
