Short Fuses - New Writing from The Shed

Short Fuses is a compendium of 20 incendiary confections created in the fractious online assembly known as the Bookshed: an unruly gathering of linguistic fugitives whose only common bond is a passion for writing, absinthe and monkeys. Most of the writers represented here are escapees from other peer-review websites, although at least one is on the run from constabularies not merely virtual. Should you wish to meet them, why not knock on the bar-room door at www.bookshed.eu? If they like the cut of your jib, they might even let you in.

Protea tempers flare between Ashwell Prince and teammates

SOUTH African batsman Ashwell Prince clashed heatedly with his Test teammates during a domestic match this week.

Prince has just returned to the national side after missing the five past Tests.

He is said to have been involved in a heated, abusive slanging match with A. B. de Villiers and Paul Harris.

Prince plays for the Eastern Cape Warriors and the other pair for the Northern Titans.

Prince had been named acting captain for this week's third Test in Cape Town, but was removed from the position the following day.
