    The first title in the Galley Beggar Singles range – and a beauty. This is a story so surprising and unsettling and delicately written that even to describe risks spoiling the shock of its ending. Suffice to say that it's about sweets—but is wonderfully sour.

    This beautifully realised story of teenage angst, parental angst, step-parental angst and getting things into proportion is the first story we're releasing by Jon Fortgang. We want him to write a novel and we want to publish it and if you buy this story, you might just help encourage him. What's more, you'll have a damn good read in your hands too. But don't take it from us, take it from Eimear McBride, who says: “This is a great story and I'm looking forward to hearing more from Jon Fortgang.”

    Here's the start of the covering letter Dan Clements first sent to Galley Beggar Press: “My name is Dan Clements. I am a former Royal Marines Commando and intelligence specialist; I am now a geopolitical analyst by day, a writer by night, and a carer of two hyperactive kittens with every spare minute left to me. I am writing to introduce my short story collection, entitled 'Time is On My Side', in which I have sought to capture something of my experiences of the frontline in Afghanistan.” Time Is On My Side turned out to be one of the best things we've been sent. It's raw, it's fascinating, it's angry, and it's also beautifully written. The Lion Of Babaji is the first (and hopefully far from the last) piece we've extracted from the collection. It's an account of dealing with an Afghan warlord. Do you even need to know more? Okay. It's frank, it's unsettling, it's brutal and yet compassionate. The first line is: “Haji Musa Khan was a crook and a murderer and a mean-looking old bastard and I couldn't help but like him” – and you have to read it.

    “Raymond Ess is going to kill me.” This is what Steven Strauss thinks. He also thinks that he and his boss Raymond Ess are on a fool's errand. They're in India to buyan anti-gravity machine – something Steven is almost certain doesn’t exist, and something Ess is convinced will save his company from bankruptcy. It's hopeless, everyone knows. At least, Steven knows it – and he knows, too, that his boss’s grip on reality is growing weaker by the day. His fixation on anti-gravity devices is just one more symptom of a failing mind…… Or is Ess, in fact, as crazy as he seems? As you readThe Weightless World, you'll start to wonder. This fantastically entertaining debutstretches the limits of possibility. It shows that when technology becomes indistinguishable from magic, miracles can happen. It shows us our world anew. And as it does, it weaves a tale of friendship, betrayal, and loss that will move the ground beneath your feet.

    There is no blurb for The Cruellne.It stands entirely alone. You just have to read it. Trust me. And you just have to know what a Cruellne is. And how to say it… Oh and it's also probably useful to know that James Clammer is a serious talent. A name to remember.

    Best Friend is the first publication from Samuel Wright and the second entry in the Galley Beggar Singles Club. It's a lovely piece of writing from one of the most promising young writers we've encountered for a long time. Set on Hackney Marshes, it's about kids, the fun of kids, horror of kids, and more simply the horror, the horror. And it's funny too. A treat, in short, from a writer who will soon make great, beautiful waves.

    The final Galley Beggar Single of 2013 and a very special one. Gerry Feehily takes us into the glamorous exciting world of fashion and models – and demonstrates conclusively that they are neither glamorous or exciting. But they are deliciously disturbing. And funny. And nasty. And as for the gunk… This one goes deep.

    “We don't need that kind of press. Believe me, we have no intent of setting up a direct line to the big guy in the sky.” A god emulator. An absent daughter. An emotional journey. Greg Sanders' Beta is sad, wistful and lovely.

    Imagine sleeping in it,' said Johnny. He leaned forward. 'Imagine lighting a fire, and killing a deer and roasting it there. We could skin it and gut it and salt it. We could live there.' His eyes widened. 'Let's do it. Let's spend the night there. It'll be amazing.' The Bunker is our second release from Samuel Wright, one of the most promising new talents we've seen. It's a story about friendship, love, rude jokes, bad words and spending a night in a World War 2 bunker. It's a story where every word counts…

    The White Goddess: An Encounter is a mesmerising tale of sex, lies and divided loyalties. Set between the magic of a bohemian Majorca and the horror of Franco”s Madrid, it is a haunting evocation of a lost time and place, dominated by the extraordinary power of Robert Graves, one of the 20th century’s greatest writers. When 10-year-old Simon Gough went to Majorca in 1953 he thought he had landed in paradise. Far from the misery of his English boarding school and his parents' divorce, he fell in love – with the tiny village of Deya, with his wild cousin Juan and most of all with his beloved ”Grand-Uncle” Robert Graves. When he returned in 1960, paradise had been overrun by beatniks and marijuana – and Simon liked it all the more. But soon he fell for the enchanting Margot Callas, Robert Graves” muse. He found himself entangled in a web of lies and deceit and playing a game whose rules he didn’t understand. The repercussions would haunt him for the rest of his life. The Observer says: “Impassioned, with all the intensive drama a youthful affair entails, this “autobifantasy” (as Gough calls it) is as much about a love of a place – the freedom and beauty of Dei? contrasts with the brutality of Franco's Madrid – as of a person. In fact, some of the finest parts of the book are not about Callas but the touching portrait of Graves and his wife Beryl; a tender, observant record both of their relationship and their real selves in their later years.”

    “You know, sometimes I wake up and for a few moments I think I am teenager again. Sometimes I feel like I am a young man and all the people who have died are still here, and I have my whole life ahead of me. Then I remember.” A haunting novella from Benjamin Myers about two old brothers, in a cabin, in a north European country, chopping wood, rubbing along, living and… well, we don't want to say more. But this is a special, strange and wonderfully touching piece of writing. Writing to love.

    “She was holding the lab workbook in front of her face and he imagined her smiling behind it. He leaned forward, his pulse slow but forceful, and placed his hand on her knee, index finger pointing up her skirt. Oh God, how he had wanted to be with her. Rhonda, keeping her face behind the book, moved her thigh backward a few inches, leaving Max's hand dangling in midair, still pointing to the place he had been thinking about ever since.” Greg Sanders second story for Galley Beggar Press takes us behind the numbers – but not in the usual way. It shows us the humans doing the Maths. It also features what must be the single greatest cameo from a garbage truck in literary fiction… Do we need to say more? Okay, it's very sweet too.

    We follow a thoroughly unreliable narrator Lamar (a former member of the Memphis mafia who has now been employed by Michael Jackson) as he loses his wife, drinks drugged coffee and sleeps for years at a time, gets shot and dies – an event that only seems to incapacitate him in so far as he can no longer smoke his favourite brand of mini-cigars. His employer, meanwhile, takes part in the last great gold rush of 1898, tries to buy a unicorn from Ebay, starts fights in shopping malls with Uri Geller, forces Lisa Marie Presley to play with his lego and attacks a horse. it took three years to put together Neverland, a novel about «Michael Jackson and his loud mouth friend Uri”.

He shared my meals and even some of my dreams.” Crump finished the book around 9pm BST on 25 June. The real Michael Jackson was dead less than four hours later.
