I have an announcement to make.
This is not really the sort of thing that I do at all. Generally I write about oddities and obscurities that interest me on this blog. I don’t really do self promotion, via any medium, let alone broadcasting to the world through the power of the internet – but here goes (let’s hope someone sees it!).
Announcement:- I have written a book of extremely short stories called ‘The Cenotaph of Dreams‘ (Amazon UK). Here’s a link to the Amazon.com page:- Cenotaph of Dreams. It is available as an e-book and also as a proper actual physical paperback book (I really can’t believe it!).
There we go. I’ve said it. It’s taken years of procrastination and writing and more procrastination, but finally I’ve done it, I’ve published something that people I don’t know can actually read. Scary stuff!
The book consists of twenty-eight experiments in brevity, with each story precisely one hundred and fifty words long; but where there is an economy of words, there is an excess of imagination.
In ‘The Cenotaph of Dreams‘ someone is buried and something is dug up, not all weather is meteorological, and you should be very wary of your pets. It is at turns phantasmagorical and unsettling, with close relations to the strange story, the weird tale, time travel, dreampunk (maybe, maybe not!), the uncanny and probably a host of other sub-genres of speculative fiction.
To acquire your twenty-eight doses of flash fiction the medication can be purchased for as little as £1.45 for the e-book and only £3.75 for the full strength paperback (which is, of course, the recommended prescription).
Here’s a link to the author’s page (Amazon UK), or here for Amazom.com – it contains the book in both formats and a short but revealing biography. By the way, I would be extremely grateful for any re-postings, mentions, shared links, tweets, reviews, or simply passing this on to someone who might be interested – every little helps!
Also, if you would like a signed edition of the paperback book please do get in touch.
