Event description

Description

Blackwell's is pleased to be hosting the launch of Unthology 11, an evening of extraordinary short fiction from new and established writers.

About the Book

What would it take to push you to the edge? And beyond? The moth that flutters round a bulb. The echo of longdrinking that hums inside your head. Your softness against all that hardness. The reflections of the glass megalith. The darkening street beneath a line of magnolia trees. The leaves of the apple tree freckled with rot. A black and ragged looking bird. One of those planes that pulls paper letters behind it. Thick, sibilant words that make your mouth water just hearing them. The scuzzy streets of Archway, where no one cares who you are. Welcome to the hinterland.
Welcome to Unthology 11.
