Thomas Hardy – The Short Stories - An Introduction. Many giants of Literature originate from the shores of these emerald isles; Shakespeare, Dickens, Chaucer, The Brontës and Austen to which most people would willingly add the name Thomas Hardy.
Far From The Madding Crowd, Tess Of The D'Urbervilles, The Mayor Of Casterbridge are but three of his literary masterpieces. But let us add to this his short stories. They are often overlooked as being the poor, under-developed relative of a greater work. But from writers of the calibre of Hardy this is just not so. He picks stories and creates characters that drive, meld and create pages that in their numerically shorter length are in fact the perfect length. Our stories are read for you by Richard Mitchley.

In 1992, a car accident kills a young man and forever changes the lives of three people… Now, twenty years later, they’ll all come to regret the choices they made that day, as the secrets and lies they’ve told to protect each other become the very things that tear their lives apart. After a night of fun, Abby was responsible for the car crash that killed her beloved brother. It is a sin she can never forgive herself for, so she pushes away the man she loves most, knowing that he would eventually hate her for what she’s done, the same way she hates herself. Twenty years later, Abby’s husband, Nate, is also living with a deep sense of guilt. He was the driver who first came upon the scene of Abby’s accident, the man who pulled her to safety before the car erupted in flames, the man who could not save her brother in time. It’s this guilt, this regret that binds them together. They understand each other. Or so Nate believes. In a strange twist of fate, Liam (her old lover—possibly her true soulmate) moves in with his own family next door, releasing a flood of memories that Abby has been trying to keep buried all these years.

Bus Station: Unbound is a fable about about finding yourself in-between places and times, an interactive fiction where the narrative decisions lie in your own hands and a grown-up "Choose your own adventure" like none you've ever read before. If you like Tales of the Unexpected, Twin Peaks and Welcome to Night Vale, you'll love this. You're heading home for Christmas. There’s a snowstorm, the roads are gridlocked and you’re stranded in a bus station known as the North’s most monstrous building.
People here are behaving strangely.
A group of teenagers seem to have vanished into thin air. Your parents' marriage is on the rocks. The whole town is traumatised and grieving and snow falls and falls like it will never stop. Outside the church bells are ringing… Bus Station: Unbound is the first in a trilogy of fully interactive novels from Curious Tales, one which tracks your journey and presents different moods, characters, genres and styles depending on the choices you make.
Is this a satire about an iconic building under threat from a short-sighted council, a horror story about infernal retribution and the tyranny of choice or a tale of guilt, home, grief and forgetfulness? You decide. Read, remix and play again. CURIOUS TALES is an author-led publishing collective.
