2015 DNA-OUT of PRINT Short Fiction Longlist

33 stories make the longlist of the DNA-OUT of PRINT Short Fiction Special.

Thank you to all the writers who sent in their work. We were impressed at the ways in which the writers addressed the theme, 'Erosion'. There were many stories about the disintegration of values and relationships, about the ageing of the body and mind, and some based on erosion in nature. The Out of Print editors did not have an easy time identifying the stories in the longlist. But here they are, listed in order of submission date. 

The shortlist will be announced mid-November.
