'3:AM London, New York, Paris' anthology out this week
I have a short story called 'When The Clocks Go Back' in a new anthology 3:AM London, New York, Paris, edited by Andrew Stevens of 3:AM fame. It is out this week and published by the esteemed Social Disease.
Here is how Amazon describes the collection:
"A pseudo-religious epiphany in South London. The Simpsons in New York. Men are stabbed on the Boulevard de Sébastopol. A transmogrification in Hackney. William cruises around the East Village in a 1972 Mercedes 220. Voluptuous neo-Post Structuralists decipher the works of Beigbeder. Wasted sons of politicians and minor royalty agonise over Ibiza while in South Kensington. Infidelity and invitations to Le Carre adaptations on Tottenham Court Road. The hookers of Les Halles. Buying ketamin from Colombians in Vauxhall at 4am. A couple lose themselves in Epping Forest. Avian adventures on the Essex Road. Un soir, un train on the Central Line. Men's magazines and those transvestite nightclub leaflets in Harlem. A literary tour of Bloomsbury becomes a diplomatic incident. A callow youth is ignored by an Indian girl for his lack of knowledge of Dave Eggers. A jazz player's existential moment in Soho. Civil disobedience is called for in NYC. Small talk in bikinis on Paris plage. A taxi driver ignores Tameny on Lexington Avenue. The literary establishment of New York is brought to its knees. A film club in Islington leads to death. A man plays Shoot the Freak on Coney Island. Featuring Chris Cleave, Matthew DeAbaitua, Niven Govinden, Laura Hird, Travis Jeppesen, Toby Litt, Ed Park, Nicholas Royle and Matt Thorne, 3:AM London, Paris, New York is a tri-city boarding pass to decadence, delusion and deceit."
