Adam Marek’s first story collection, Instruction Manual for Swallowing, was published by Comma Press in 2007, and nominated for the Frank O’Connor Prize. In 2010, his short story ‘Fewer Things’ was shortlisted for the Sunday Times Sort Story Award. His stories have appeared in Prospect magazine and in anthologies including When It Changed and The New Uncanny from Comma Press, two Bridport Prize collections and the British Council’s New Writing 15. He has also recently been awarded the 2011 Arts Foundation Fellowship in short story writing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Stone Thrower

  

Hal was awakened by a brief expletive from one of the chickens outside. And then there was another, coupled with a dull thud. Out of bed, Hal stuck his head into the hoverfly graveyard between netting and pane to see that in the enclosure directly below the window, two of the chickens were dead.
