In Dulci Jubilo


I’m very pleased to announce the publication of In Dulci Jubilo, an omnibus of my first three titles, Bound in Morocco: A Short Story of Intrigue, To Cut a Short Story Short: 111 Little Stories, and To Cut a Short Story Short, vol. II: 88 Little Stories.

I have re-read (many for the first time in years) and edited all two hundred stories,  and am delighted to say that I enjoyed them all! So, the omnibus contains the very latest up-to-date versions of every story. They range from one hundred words to seven and a half thousand.

The three individual volumes that make up In Dulci Jubilo have also been republished with the revised texts, in hardback (though not Bound in Morocco), paperback, and Kindle.

The description of In Dulci Jubilo reads as follows:

A female bookseller is forced to attend a dance in drag to atone for a ‘misdemeanor’; four school friends experience terror on a caravan holiday; a lonely widow encounters an enigmatic character from an embryonic pop group; a man taking a garden gnome to a museum gets an unwelcome surprise; a group of scientists make a horrific discovery at a big cat conservation centre; and a baby hare comes of age with a momentous idea.

These and 194 other stories are presented here in a complete, bumper edition of the author’s first three titles, To Cut a Short Story Short: 111 Little Stories, To Cut a Short Story Short, vol. II: 88 Little Stories, and Bound in Morocco: A Short Story of Intrigue.

“Five stars to Simon J. Wood and To Cut a Short Story Short. Literature and audiobook fans will love these fascinating tales.” – James W. George (author of My Father’s Kingdom series).

The book comes out at 581 pages in paperback and the quality of both paper and print are excellent. I have also published it in hardback. However, because KDP has a maximum page limit of 550 pages for hardbacks, I had to reduce the font very slightly, 11 point Times New Roman instead of 12 point, and to cut out a bit of white space here and there. Nothing has been omitted, and the text is clear and legible. The hardback version runs to 525 pages. It is also available on Kindle.
I highly recommend this omnibus edition to buy as a gift. Through Amazon, you can have it sent directly to the recipient. Or, of course, why not treat yourself?!
