From the publisher:
This is an anthology about people who don’t fit in. These stories explore what it is to be an outsider, from some of the most exciting voices in short fiction.
From lovers to loners, moonlighters to midnight walkers, these pages are haunted by more than ghosts: loss, lack of direction, insecurity and otherworldly hunger.
But most importantly, it asks the question: if we’re us, then who are you?
With stories from: Julia Armfield, Jen Campbell, Sarvat Hasin, Beverley Ho, Emma Hutton, Susan James, Kirsty Logan, Lena Mohamed, Heather Parry, Leone Ross, Stephanie Victoire, Anna Walsh, Eley Williams, Lara Williams and Anna Wood and a foreword by Irenosen Okojie.
'These anthologies are consistently the place to go to find fiction which is both playful and fearless, stretching at the limits of what language can do. These collections are gifts to us. Outsiders is a rich mine, at times frightening, at times exhilarating, always a joy to explore.' - Daisy Johnson
'3 of Cups are becoming my go-to for finding new and vital voices, brilliant insights, and gripping writing. Outsiders is their best anthology yet.' - Kiran Millwood Hargrave
'A marvellous and strange cornucopia. Beautifully written and curated, each story is its own unique world which, all together, form a remarkable project which gives an important insight into contemporary society. Equally, it gives the reader a moreish pleasure in reading, and is an exciting introduction to some of today’s most interesting literary talent.' - Camilla Grudova
