Last night saw the launch of Ten-word Tragedies in London. Frank Turner played an acoustic set and hung around afterwards to sign and chat. Tim and Christopher were also there, working hard, along with Stephen Volk.
If you missed out last night, you can catch up with Tim, Christopher and Stephen at Edge-lit in Derby on Saturday. Details can be found at the link here.
Finally I’ll leave you with a couple of pictures from last night…
The Edge – the final book in the Relics trilogy is due out on June 25th.
Forty years ago the town of Longford was the site of a deadly disease outbreak that wiped out the entire population. The infection was contained, the town isolated, and the valley in which it sits flooded and turned into a reservoir. The truth—that the outbreak was intentional, and not every resident of Longford died—disappeared beneath the waves.
Now the town is revealed again. The Kin have an interest in the ruins, and soon the fairy Grace and the Nephilim leader Mallian are also drawn to them. The infection has risen from beneath silent waters, and this forgotten town becomes the focus of the looming battle between humankind and the Kin.
The launch party for Ten-word Tragedies will take place at the Lexington in London (near Angel), on July 10th. Tim and Christopher Golden will be there, and Frank Turner will be playing a short acoustic set.
A limited number of tickets are still available, along with further details of the evening, from the link here.
Wandering lonely through the snow streets of New York I stumbled on a thrift store that sold postcards by the yard I bought a mile and shipped them home so I could read Ten thousand ten-word tragedies, the lives these strangers lead To remind myself the things I need
Ten-word Tragedies is a new Anthology edited by Tim and Christopher Golden coming soon from PS Publishing
Inspired by Frank Turner and his songs—especially that evocative verse from Mittens—the editors were delighted to learn that he really did find that box of postcards in a New York thrift store. Frank was kind enough to send us the box, and from it we chose a series of postcards and forwarded them to the writers in this book. Gaining inspiration from the postcards and their ‘ten word tragedies’, the contributors wrote an amazingly eclectic selection of tales—moving, funny, horrific, bizarre, and delightful, these are the lives these strangers lead.
Click on the cover for ordering details and a table of contents. Available as an unsigned hardcover, or a 100 copy edition signed by the contributors.
A launch party, including an appearance by Frank Turner, is scheduled for July 10th in London. Watch the PS site for ticket details, and I’ll get them on here as soon as I can.
