My favourite stories of 2020 —

FAIREST OF THEM ALL by Albert Power (Crooked Houses)
THE BLISSFUL TINCTURES by Jonathan Wood (Bitter Distillations)
MEMORIES OF THE BONE PEOPLE by Colin Insole (Chiaroscuro Void)
….which in hindsight makes me think I should have included CROOKED HOUSES in my list of books above for 2020!
