December 2012 – August 2017
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.
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!
This year’s Nine Worlds Geekfest (12th-14th August) will, for the first time, include an Expo – which has been dubbed the Geekfayre. We will be there on a table with our books. More details to follow as soon as we know them.
We’re also very proud to be an official sponsor of Nine Worlds 2016.
So, if you’re going to Nine Worlds anyway, come into the Geekfayre, say hello, have a browse and buy a book or two
We look forward to seeing you there.
We will be back at Nine Worlds Geekfest again this year (4-6th August). The vendors will be inside the convention, not in a separate Expo like last year, so we should be easy to find. Come and say hello, have a browse, buy some books. We will have some new books that will be on sale for the first time at Nine Worlds, and a couple that we will be launching there (on Saturday); we expect to be joined by some of our authors too – more details closer to the day. Hope to see you there too.
Oh, and did we mention that we’re Gold Sponsor for Nine Worlds this year?
John will be reading from his retrospective anthology of short stories Don’t Look Back.
Then Peter R. Ellis (whose latest book Cold Fire, a September Weekes novel, will be out in eBook on 4th August) will interview them both. There should be time for a few questions from the audience too! There will be refreshments available of course, and copies of the books to buy – they’ll even sign them if you like
It’s in the online programme (as Elsewhen Press presents) so be sure to add it into your personal Grenadine schedule. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
