Middle Distance: Long Stories of Aotearoa New Zealand
Middle Distance: Long Fiction of Aotearoa New Zealand is an anthology of new writing from VUP, following on
from the success of Monsters in the Garden: An Anthology of Aotearoa New Zealand Science Fiction and Fantasy,
and like it born out of the long running literary magazine Sport.
Middle Distance collects new writing from established and emerging New Zealand authors. !ese stories – not
long enough to be considered a novella, or short enough to \”t easily into many online formats – cover a wide
range of genre and styles. In Middle Distance, we wanted writers to break new territory in the exploration of
character, setting and story-telling. But we also wanted stories that compelled, that gave the reader the sense of
being told something – intimate, electrifying, beautiful – they wouldn’t soon forget.
Edited and with an introduction by Craig Gamble.
