Midwinter Anthology

Midwinter Anthology

Jara23 Publishing's Midwinter Anthology 2016.

Welcome the 2016 Midwinter Anthology. This anthology is perhaps a little different from those that have gone before. It is bigger, better, and some stories may not be suitable for younger readers. Some of you who have been following the work of Jara23 Publishing may have noticed that we missed our anthology in 2015. This was because one of our authors, and a close personal friend, passed away that year. Jon Scholes, known as Big Bad Jon to pretty much everyone has been a regular contributor to this anthology since it began. It is with some sorrow that this anthology carries his last ever story 'Unforgivable Sin'. As ever, this anthology is full of a broad variety of stories, ranging from thrillers, to horror, to sci-fi, and back again.

Phil Bettinson offers us a creeping thriller in the science-fiction Beep and explores a dystopian future without stories in 'Hello Citizen'.

John Dodd thrills us with his Brave New World then takes us on a different take of what it would be like with super-powered humans in The Bottom Drawer.

Christian Klose offers us an exploration on love in Comtessa and another in their poem Love Never Dies, or so they say.

Michael Greenwell shows us how a company offering a new start may not be all they appear in Demonshcrift.

Kim Hosking tells us tales of a river in Pennies for the Dead, and tales of struggle in The Cave.

Lumde Nopem explores the difficult question of who truly is a monster in Monster. Not for the faint-hearted.

Katherine Burton wonders what hell truly looks like in Hell on Earth

Jon Scholes takes us on a tale of death, asks if there is such a thing as forgiveness in Unforgivable Sin

We here at Jara23 Publishing hope that you enjoy our offerings for this midwinter. Now it's time to find yourselves a nice warm fire to curl up infront of, and enjoy.

Welcome to Midwinter Anthology. A collection of short stories, poems and art all offered for free. A small present from us, to you. There is no theme in the anthology, but we hope that you will find herein a harmony.


Michael Greenwell offers two stories from different ends of the spectrum. Alone In The Night brings a story of the things that could go bump in the night. The things that stalk the two unfortunate people in the story.
In Candy Man Can, he offers the other side of the coin, the view from those who stalk the night.


The author of the Aberddu stories, Lilian Surgeson, offers a story from a different view in She Was like the Island. A view from an Island, a place where time slows down, but perhaps a place where time finally offers some closure.

`Big Bad' Jon Scholes offers a story from a small toy-store. A story of imagination that might just change the way you look at sweets in Adrenaline and Glucose.

A story of hope comes from Alex Patterson. Somewhere, at the end of a journey, there is still much hope to be found, even for those whose journeys were long ago. Read where the journey goes in A Path Less Travelled

The artist Michelle Palmer offers us her picture of a pheonix from the flames. A fitting image for midwinter, where the dying world is renewed.


Lumde Nopem brings a poem of a boy dreaming of the stories he will one day write, a boy who sat and dreamed in The Boy Under The Stars, and a short story of a man on a search, and an encounter along the way in the aptly names The Search.

Two anonymous poetry submissions, one offering us a view of the nightfall, bathed in precious glittering colours, Eventide, and one that offers us a view of midwinter through the eye of the poet in Midwinter.

Jenny Oldroyd offers a poem from the heart in Time Enough, a reminder that even as the year turns, there is still time to spend.

The final piece, from myself, Cobwebs and Peace tells, in poetry, of a woman at work lace-making, and what she inspires.

We hope that you read these stories, and enjoy them. So, without further ado, rest yourselves by the fire, and enjoy this Midwinter Anthology.

 Welcome to our second Midwinter Anthology. Our second collection of poems and short stories, all offered for free. This is a small present from us, to you. While there is no theme in the anthology, we hope that you will find herein a harmony.

Micheal Greenwell offers us a pause on a journey in Moments Between, a story that typifies the journey of life.

Jenny Oldroyd offers a take on love and it's constant battle with lust, in her poem Poem 1

Kim Hosking offers us two stories that explore themese of love. In the first Dear Kate Kim explores different understandings of what it means to love, and what that love could look like. In Perks and Daily she offers us an alternative view of the world, exploring an urban myth about the loss of a loved one.

Megan Bettinson explores the love for a place, for her city. Speaking of the deep longing for home in her poem Hiraeth.

Lumde Nopem offers us a short story that explores the love of a writer for their created world, and explores what it means to give everything to a book in Thai sat down, took a sip of tea, and began to write.

Georgia Finch offers a poem about chasing our hearts desire, and what it means to not quite be good enough, yet, in her poem Untitled.

Duncan J. McNulty explores the theme of love in both This Years Love, and Illusion. Love can be found in all kinds of places, some of which can change how we view the thigns around us, or, how we explore and understand our own reactions.

Phil Bettinson offers us a rather dark take on escaping a relationship without love in The Devil and Mrs. Durant, perhaps not one to be read too late at night.

Ulysses Jones offers us the struggle of offering our heart to someone in his poem Sweet Little Nothings - or perhaps more

Natasha Borton explores the the sea-side, exploring it's affect on us, and perhaps even, on our souls in her poem Ar Lan Y Mor (Down by the sea)

We hope that you read these stories, and enjoy them. So, without further ado, rest yourselves by the fire, and enjoy this Midwinter Anthology.
