In the aftermath of the electorate of Scotland choosing to vote 'No' to becoming an independent country, Tales From a Cancelled Country brings us 17 stories, all of which show aspects of what it means to be human. Many of the writers in this anthology have appeared in thi wurd, a magazine established in Glasgow in 2012 to provide a platform for people striving to create literary art. Added to those are new voices, some published for the first time. The stories include Who Is Killing The Fringe Comedians of Edinburgh? by Alan Warner, who also provides the title for the collection.
