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.

A gothic tale of mystery, friendship, tragedy and revenge. Join body snatchers Hunt and Foley as they explore a Victorian Glasgow ruled by a secret society who are ruled in turn by the undead, from the private clubs, townhouses and country manors of the privileged to the dung-choked wynds and overcrowded slums of the poor. Tread warily…
