George Bernard Shaw said that if more than ten per cent of the population likes a work of art, it should be burned.  Yet this new anthology of Creative Writing from the University of Gloucestershire contains something to excite everyong.  Still, before you burn Fire, note that the writers features inside take risks, break rules, challenge and provoke.  This is a collection to unsettle, delight, and surprise.  So go on: take a deep breath and step into the fire.
