Although, by launching another surprise publication, it might seem as if we were hellbent on losing money. The Invisible Collection is a 100pp original anthology of short stories by staff and students – and former students – of the Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University. The project was inspired by the discovery in the Special Collections of the university’s library of an uncut copy of an edition of a short story, ‘The Invisible Collection’, by Austrian writer Stefan Zweig (1881–1942). Because the pages were uncut, it was, effectively, invisible. It is published in an edition of 200 unnumbered, unsigned, paperback copies, with a cover conceived – and illustrations by – Sian Bonnell of the Manchester School of Art. The anthology does not contain the Zweig story, which is available from Pushkin Press.
