Dear Short Fiction fans,
The Siren Press invites you to the launch of Fugue Vol. II – the second volume of contemporary short stories in the Fugue anthology series.
Find out more about The Siren Press here.
Featuring a group of explorative short story authors, writing to you from outside the construct of the thematic anthology, the ‘Fuguists’ bring to you an exceptional array of contemporary short fiction. Crafted in ways that play with traditional notions of short story form and content, accompanied by the equally disquieting illustrations of artist Alexandru Savescu, Fugue Vol. II is set to inspire and enthral.
We invite you to join us for author readings, a print exhibition of the illustrations featured in the anthology and drinks, at Enitharmon, one of Britain’s most enterprising and independent presses:
Enitharmon Press, 10 Bury Place, London, WC1A 2JL
Friday 24th July 2015
6.30pm – 9.30pm
Brandon Robshaw, Alyson Hallett, Catherine McNamara, L. D. Lapinski, Clare Fisher, Sally Oliver, C. G. Menon, Darren Lee
Step into the visceral world of Fugue, and open your eyes to the blood soaked streets of Norfolk Drive; feel the weight of the brooding eyes that watch you from the confines of “the hole in the wall”; play detective and solve a murder that occurs in the space of another person’s dream; follow your feet into your past and metamorphose into the mythical creature whose image haunts you.
Fugue II continues the theme of disorientation and probing the unsettling, fantastically hilarious and often exceptionally dark minds of some of today’s most exciting short fiction writers. The Fugue series prides itself on featuring characters with divergent viewpoints of everyday reality, and hopes to promote alternative ways of experiencing and describing our world.
Please come along, all welcome!
