About the Book

The inaugural Short Sharp Stories anthology, Bloody Satisfied, includes twenty-four top stories, and is introduced with a rollicking foreword by Deon Meyer. It is a collection of thrilling twist-in-thetale stories that make good on the ‘Bloody Satisfied’ promise: slick and sexy stories that brim with danger and elements of the sinister; sophisticated stories that focus on the subtler crimes of everyday life; smart stories that invert expectations and linger in the mind.

The Short Sharp Stories Awards are a platform for both established and emerging writers in South Africa. The Awards are run with support from the National Arts Festival and are curated by Joanne Hichens at
