A man full of ale won’t think twice about taking on a monster. After Victor, Catherine Leyshon

On television, a woman pan-fries Mount’s Bay sardines on a Cornish beach. She tilts the skillet to the camera. ‘So fresh they don’t know they’re dead.’ The Good Daughter, Mike Davis

‘Dad, seriously. There’s no Cat of Camborne.’ ‘You say that as you’ve not seen it, but it’s out there, and it’s ready for the hunt!’ The Cat of Camborne, Jason Kenyon

Thin streaks of cloud trailed across an azure sky, whilst a murmuration of starlings contrasted in a beautiful swooping black mass against the blue. After the Storm, Lamorna Ireland

It is the music I miss the most. The reassuring noise in an otherwise empty house to give me the illusion that I’m not alone. Filling the Silence, Anita D Hunt
