Douglas Thompson – “Launching into the Slipstream” at Scottish Writers’ Centre, CCA Glasgow @ Scottish Writers’ Centre
Dec 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Douglas Thompson, author of Entanglement, will be launching and reading from his latest work, including Entanglement, and “will talk about the background to why and how I wrote them and the state of the genre scene in general”. He will be introduced by independent press editor and ‘Slipstream guru’ Allen Ashley, in the form of a talk on what exactly Slipstream fiction is and why its special blend of fantastical and realistic elements makes it the perfect contemporary fiction for the 21st century.

This free entry event is being held on 20 December 2012 at 7pm, under the auspices of the Scottish Writers’ Centre at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow.

Douglas ThompsonOur very own Douglas Thompson will be leading an ‘In Process Masterclass’ for the Scottish Writers’ Centre in Glasgow, on Tuesday 27th October 2015 at 7pm. Douglas is one of Glasgow’s most original exponents of dark surreal fiction. Described as “a name to watch” by Interzone magazine Douglas has published eight books of which Elsewhen Press have published two: Entanglement and The Rhymer, an Heredyssey. He will also be launching his ninth book, The Sleep Corporation (Exaggerated Press) at the masterclass.
