You Are The Friction
Anthology of Short Fiction

You Are The Friction is an anthology of collaborative short fiction and illustration.

It's a small, bright red record of what happens when you introduce twelve writers to twelve illustrators, light a match, and run in the opposite direction.

Twelve short stories inspired by illustrations, twelve illustrations inspired by short stories, all collected in a handsome paperback edition. 

See the Additional Information tab below for list of the stories, artists and authors. 

Forward by Sean Michaels, cover by Ray Fenwick

Size: 5" x 7.5"

A lumberjack auteur turns his back on a woodland filmset beset with creatures, while a bet is tentatively placed at Finch's.

Oliver Jeffers & Joe Meno
A practical guide to the correct uses of helium, and an abysmal warehouse rave leads to a bathtub tryst in Belfast.

An ageing star mourns his wilder years in the company of sea creatures, and a young man explores the forest.

Jim Tierney & Ned Beauman
A tragic wartime mystery laced with the scent of lilacs, and a window into the writers room of Dragonblade.
