New book from Charles Wilkinson

Splendid3

Charles Wilkinson’s SPLENDID IN ASH is now available to order from the Egaeus Press website. This book contains seventeen previously uncollected stories from a writer whose seemingly effortless ability to turn the ordinary, the everyday, the outwardly mundane volte-face into regions of feverish weirdness is unrivalled.

Garrie Fletcher has stories coming out and readings coming up.

Mantle Lane Press have taken Garrie’s short story, Electricity, to be included in a wonderful anthology that focuses on outsiders. The collection is entitled Songs for the Elephant Man. They’re also going to publish a long short story of his called ‘Submerged’. More news on this soon.
On the performance front, he’ll be reading a short story as part of a Room 204 sharing session at the Birmingham Literature Festival on Sat 6 Oct, 10am, at Birmingham Rep and the ticket price includes a tea/coffee and a pastry. Join him and other writers like Jane Campion Hoye, Lisa Blower and Amarjit Nar and meet other writers and readers!

He is also appearing at a ‘Country Voices’ event, on Saturday 15 December, 2:30-4pm. It’s at the Meadow Inn, a charming venue above the River Severn in Ironbridge.

You’ll find more out about Garrie at his website.

New story from Charles Wilkinson in Canadian anthology

Charlie has a story in this anthology of ‘weird fiction’, the seventh in a series that Peter Straub describes as: ‘a smart, soulful, illuminating investigation of the many forms and tactics available to those writers involved in one of our moment’s most interesting and necessary projects, that of opening up horror literature to every sort of formal interrogation. It is a beautiful and courageous series.’
