Salt and the Frank O'Connor Prize

I've been away for a few days and thought that now I'm back I'd be changing my tune, but the short story is keeping afloat as a subject. The longlist has been announced for the prestigious Frank O'Connor award for a collection of stories, and on the list alongside Alice Munro and David Malouf appear authors from independent British publisher Salt, Chrissie Gittins, Jay Merill and John Saul.

While Salt's self-styled 'literary' character is thus confirmed, their concern with business strategy is considered and energetic, as publisher Chris Hamilton-Emery demonstrates here, here and here.
