A CERTAIN PERSUASION, NO HOLDS BARD and RAINBOW BOUQUET will be removed from sale on 31 July 2020.

Our other anthologies will remain available to purchase until 31 January 2021.  From the moment the anthology is removed from sale, MANIFOLD PRESS officially relinquishes all interest in any future publication of the stories.  Every author either has been, or will be in due course, contacted directly about the formal reversion of their rights.  [This is also the case for the authors of our books.]
