Our newest story collection is Dip Flash by Jonathan Pinnock.

In Dip Flash we are taken to worlds where houses disappear, a wife runs off with a porpoise, and on to Heaven, where only French is spoken. From a bull in a china shop to a scheme for releasing the equity in grannies, these stories are dark and raw, grotesque and fantastic. They are also laugh-out-loud funny.

978-0-9957381-7-1. Cultured Llama. PB. 203×127mm. 154pp. March 2018. Short Stories. £12.00

This is collection that caused our editor to snort with laughter, often in public places, whilst reading the manuscript. The collection achieves that rare combination of being laugh-out-loud funny and literary. We sometimes get a little excited at Cultured Llama HQ when the likes of Joanne Harris and David Gaffney offer endorsements for a book. Here is what they have to say about Dip Flash:

A remarkable collection – compact, witty, incisive and surreal. Loved it! – Joanne Harris

Endlessly inventive and astonishingly original, these sharply executed slivers of wit and fun are well-crafted, yet have at the same time a rawness that makes you feel that they could have sprung out from Pinnock’s mind in one single unedited bound. – David Gaffney, author of Sawn Off Tales
