New Weird Fiction Bizarro Book Release! Plus Getting Ready For The Brighton Fringe Festival 2017

Ta dah! Novella number 2 is out on the town, dancing fancy free in all the speakeasies, with Strange House Books.

Cover (by my love mump Bill Purnell):

Blurb: “Aisha’s front room doubles as a depression-era cinema, her bedroom a Parisian salon and her study a book shop from the psychedelic Sixties. Lately, though, something dark and menacing has been changing the landscapes and the people in them, leading Aisha to question whether she may be the cause.”

Trailer (written by me and animated by Bill):

Get your copy here! As soon as I discovered it was live I had a panic attack, but the panic was tinged with excitement so it wasn’t all bad.

The publisher posted a fun little interview in which you find out which Mighty Boosh character I’d be so have a read of that.

Also on May 14th I’ll be reading from it *in front of people* for the Brighton Fringe Festival which is mildly terrifying. Last Sunday I went with Bill and our friend Steve to put up posters for it and take their artwork to a gallery. Have a peek at our gaffes and hi-jinks in the very short video below.
