Shoes, Ships and Cadavers: Tales from North Londonshire

Due soon: Shoes, Ships and Cadavers: Tales from North Londonshire by the Northampton Science Fiction Writers Group; with an introduction by Alan Moore.

Twelve tales of science fiction, fantasy and horror…

Northampton: a town that sits at the heart of England. A town that has played host to kings, saints, parliament, public hangings, and hot air balloons. A place steeped in history, laden with mystery, and bursting with wonders just waiting to be realised. Let us be your guides...

Established in 2002, the NSFWG exists to enable local writers of genre fiction to learn their trade and hone their skills. The group includes both established novelists and exciting new talents. This volume features twelve original stories set in Northampton and acts as a showcase for their work, including Ian Watson, Ian Whates, Sarah Pinborough and Mark West.

'I read this in a single sitting, something that I can’t remember managing with an anthology for a considerable while. I don’t expect to read a book this year that is more personally satisfying or a greater cause for optimism. Passionately recommended' – Alan Moore, from his introduction.

Available as a limited edition (of just 50) dust-jacketed hardback (£15.99) and an A5 sized paperback (£9.99). Available to pre-order at the Newcon Press website.
