Here we are then. Sensorama, an anthology of slipstream stories, is now out from Eibonvale Press. The book includes my new short story The Impression of Craig Shee, which deals with my favourite topic, the fragility of memory, but also explores the fragility of perception itself. It’s probably the straightest thing I’ve ever written, only just scraping into speculative territory by the skin of its teeth. I’m so pleased editor Allen Ashley felt it was a good fit for the book.
Allen and David Rix are launching Sensorama at the British Fantasy Society’s open night in a couple of weeks, which is happily taking place in my manor (did I use that right?) just down the road from Angel Station in Islington. I shall be there. Here are the details:
Venue: The Blacksmith & the Toffeemaker pub, 292-294 Saint John Street, London EC1V 4PA
Date and time: 6 March 2015, 7pm to 11pm (although it looks like the Eibonvale crew will be there from 6)
Nearest tube: Angel (Northern Line)
Directions: out of Angel tube, turn left and follow road downhill. Pub is on a corner after 5-7 mins walk
The BFS website has this to say:
“Sensorama” consists of 21 knockout stories exploring the conventional and unconventional senses; it features some of the most exciting writers in the genre. Everyone who purchases a copy of the book on the night will receive a ticket offering them the chance to win framed artwork from the book.
