Weird Stories for Weird Times w/ M John Harrison

  • Waterstones Gower Street 82 Gower Street London, England, WC1E 6EQ United Kingdom (map)

Waterstones Gower Street welcome northern indie publishers Comma Press and Dead Ink Press for a very special event with newcomer, Gary Budden and Sci Fi heavyweight M. John Harrison.

M. John Harrison is considered one of the most important stylists in modern day Science Fiction and Fantasy writing. In You Should Come With Me Now, his first collection of short stories for over 15 years, we see the master of the New Wave present new visions of the British landscape, as well the deterioration of international politics, that are as horripilating as they are timely.

Gary Budden is the co-director of Influx Press. Finding horror and ecstasy in the mundane, his debut, Hollow Shores follows characters on the cusp of change in broken-down environments – on the shoreline of a receding, retreating England -- and the landscapes of the mind.

Join both writers in conversation with Glyn Morgan, as they discuss these genre-blurring collections, writing worlds that are simultaneously real and unreal, and weird stories for weird times.

Venue: Waterstones Gower Street
