What if you had different authors each write the same story? What would each of them bring to the piece in terms of style, tone, and resolution? That’s the question this anthology sets out to answer.
Reading 5X5 asked twenty-five authors to tell five stories in five different ways. We started with story briefs in five different genres – each brief with just the basic information required to tell a story. Then we asked five authors to write that story, each in their own way. The result is twenty-five great, fascinatingly different stories.
This is the Writers' Edition - the twenty-five original stories, plus two extra stories, the original story briefs, and extensive author notes for each story and each brief - 100 pages of extra material specifically intended for writers!
