#MilitantFactionsQuotes 65:

Beneath the curving staircase to his left a plain wooden door carried a faded brass plate bearing the unimprovable word ‘maintenance’. Edward held up the bunch of keys to one of the long pale lights, squinting, sweating from the Shamrock’s poorly piped booze, old barman Stan long gone to the crematorium, his smoke and Dolly’s entwined and rising, the place now staffed by Poles who had never tasted real ale in their strange cold towns.

-From "Midnight Hollow", published in the "Still" anthology (Negative Press, 2015), and one of the stories in Mark Piggott's fiction/non-fiction collection "Militant Factions" available in paperback or Kindle from Amazon.
