The New Paper Windows is a lively and provocative collection of 36 short short stories suitable for secondary students of English. These lesson-sized stories from Australian and international authors cover a range of themes, styles and genres, and introduce students to writing techniques and the skills of critical literacy.

This new edition of the well-established anthology includes more than a dozen new short stories, revised activities throughout, and a bold and engaging design and illustrations. Focusing on genre stories, it features work from both well-known authors, such as Haruki Murakami, Damien Broderick and Ursula le Guin, and authors just starting their literary careers.
