Good fiction does more than tell a story. It gives the gift of experience.

The Wessex Collective

If literary fiction (story telling) is the way that human beings can understand and describe what history feels like, we believe it should be relevant to universal and historic human experience.  We believe also that literary fiction provides an opportunity to recognize, with significant impact, the problems of societies as well as individuals.

At the Wessex Collective we are publishing books that demonstrate an empathy for human vulnerability and an understanding of how that is important to the larger society.

Many—and soon all—of the Wessex books are available in ebook formats from all the leading ebook outlets (Apple iBooks store, Amazon Kindle store, Barnes and Noble, Sony, Kobo and so forth) as well as Smashwords. Prices range from free (many of them) to $3.99 and can be located by title or writer’s name.
