We are thrilled to be publishing a new short story by playwright David Rudkin and are grateful to Gareth Evans and Jack McNamara for putting us in touch with David, whose story, ‘The Keeper’, is paired with ‘Tower Block Ghost Story’ by TSJ Harling, a somewhat newer author we are equally excited to welcome to the list.
Imogen Reid came to our attention thanks to the wonderful Gordian Projects who in 2018 published her Losing Track fiction/script/essay hybrid, which has just been reprinted. Her new story, ‘The Elevator’, is paired with ‘Two Degrees of Freedom’ by novelist Simon Okotie. We’re excited to be publishing these two authors and in particular these two stories, as we are interested in exploring further the mysterious territory where the uncanny story and experimental fiction intersect, or overlap, or whatever it is they might do. We imagine that Giles Gordon, whose fiction ranged from traditional ghost stories to boldly innovative experimental writing, might have approved.
Thank you to John Oakey of John Oakey Design, who is the designer and typesetter of all our publications, and to Bella Royle, for updating this website and keeping the show on the road. Thanks, also, to the always-reliable H&H Reeds Printers Ltd of Penrith.
