Tea at the Midland

David Constantine's wonderful story 'Tea at the Midland' won the National Short Story Award this week. I absolutely loved his first collection Under the Dam, and The Shieling is on my never ending list of books I really want to read and wish I'd got round to reading already. Download the podcast of David's story and those of the other shortlisted entrants here whilst you can, as I seem to remember last year's NSSA podcasts disappearing after a short time. You can also buy the anthology of the five shortlisted stories here.
