The Gem Street anthology constitutes, in the words of its publisher Irish Labello Press, an “eclectic and outstanding tumble of glittering new stories carefully selected from entries to [Labello Press’s] first International Short Story Competition”. It includes the Leonard A. Koval Memorial Prize winners for 2012 representing Ireland, the U.K., France, Spain, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States.

The short story of mine that is included in this anthology is entitled “Cake, Bang and Elm”,—the third prize winning entry in the competition.
