More Nuggets From Gold Dust

"Each story is original, thoughtful, and well crafted"
- Vine Leaves Literary Journal

The second Gold Dust anthology contains the best short stories from 5 years of publication in our magazine, so the bar is set pretty high!

For people living in the UK we have a limited number of copies that we can still offer at the reduced price

of £6.50 (inclusive of postage within the UK) which you can order by

emailing us

It's also still available for overseas readers from our sales pages on Lulu.com, which ships worldwide, at £6.99 (not including postage).


An alternative suggestion: the First Gold Dust Prose Anthology

Solid Gold

The first Gold Dust anthology, containing the best short stories from the first 5 years of publication in the magazine, is also still available to purchase from Lulu.com at £4.05 (not including postage), which is a truly astonishing offer for what we believe to be one of the finest short story collections on the market.
