Did you enjoy fairy tales as a child but now find them too childish or feel that you know the stories inside out? Be prepared to be surprised, with B. J. Epstein’s Shine a brilliant modernised Cinderella story based on a shoe- shiner working in Union Station, New York City. ‘Dull black pumps’ replace the age-old glass slippers but this short story is anything but dull. A moving and interesting read.

Looking towards the New Year:
From Ceremonies for Candlemas Eve by Robert Herrick
Thus times do shift; each thing his turn does hold;
New things succeed, as former things grow old
