You can now preorder my new collection of short stories from Amazon. The official release date will be 30th October. This is taken from the book’s blurb: ‘The Blink That Killed the Eye is a stunningly crafted debut short story collection, taking a poetic torch to the shadows of daily life - illuminating the characters, situations, emotions and dilemmas that pour into even the most ordinary existences. From building sites to prison cells; from the birth of love to the last moments of breath - Anthony Anaxagorou navigates expertly through the tangled nets of invisibility, desperation and power to bring us time-defining tales of tragedy and hope; commenting on the irony of our shrinking capacity to really see ourselves or each other in a world increasingly defined by appearances and dangerous preconceptions.’
The adult asks, how much will it cost to cure cancer? To feed the poor? To house the homeless? To combat addiction? To build libraries? To furnish schools? To improve health care?
The child responds, a lot less than it costs to have wars.
