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.
Douglas Thompson will be at The Speculative Bookshop’s first ever event. Taking place in Glasgow at the Old Hairdressers on Sunday 1st December from 6:30pm, they are hosting some local writers (not least of whom will be Douglas) who will be reading from – and selling – their books.
Go along, say “Hello” to Douglas, buy a copy of Entanglement and he will surely sign it for you 😉
Our 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.
The evening is billed as a diverse and unorthodox exploration of the art of writing from the perspective of someone implacably opposed to the sameness and complacency of major commercial publishers. Sounds like fun!
Existence is Elsewhen, our fantastic new anthology is available from 18th March 2016 as an eBook. It will be published in print on 25th March 2016, and launched at Mancunicon.
The title, Existence is Elsewhen, paraphrases the last sentence of André Breton’s 1924 Manifesto of Surrealism, perfectly summing up the intent behind this anthology of stories from a wonderful collection of authors. Different worlds… different times. It’s what Elsewhen Press has been about since we launched our first title in 2011.
In Existence is Elsewhen we present twenty science fiction stories for you to enjoy, one from each of the following twenty great authors:
