Post subject:  Tallest Stories manuscripts offer

My new book Tallest Stories is due out soon, probably at the end of January 2013... It's a collection of 60 stories that are linked to each other in various intricate ways; the book is divided into three sections and each section is a framing device inside a bigger framing device, and some of the stories are framing devices for other stories or even for other framing devices, and characters in one story will tell the next story, or be told by the characters in the next story, and everything goes round in a loop but it's a twisted loop and hopefully looks like a sort of mandala...

I started writing this book in 1994 and finished writing it in 2009. It was accepted for publication in 2010 and now, at long last, is due to appear (barring accidents, natural or conspired) NINETEEN YEARS after its original conception.

The publisher in question is Eibonvale Press and they are open for pre-orders on Saturday January 5th (tomorrow) at 6:00 PM. Check out their website here:
http://www.eibonvalepress.co.uk/index.htm

The first 26 books sold will be 'lettered copies', signed and personalised and accompanied by various handwritten manuscripts, paintings and drawings. A full list of these items is now available on my blog here:

At the moment they are worthless, but in the future, who knows??

I am now adding a few free copies of the scarcer Nemo ONE and TWO to the anonymous dissemination 'task' described below for anyone interested. I am already having feedback from the initial surge!

Also, I have a few LAST BALCONIES and FIRST BOOKS OF CLASSICAL HORROR STORIES for sale that I can sign, if anyone is interested.

"They are groundbreaking anthologies, in both concept and design. I don't think anything this original had appeared since Michael Moorcock's New Worlds. Like that magazine, there's a mix of fiction that you'll love - or not - in each volume. But with such a no-catch offer, you really owe it to yourself to take Des up on it, don't you?" -- Rog Pile regarding the Nemonymous books, which he stated here http://filthycreations.proboards.com/in ... 480&page=1 a week or so ago.
And this is the OFFER from me to which he refers (and I've already sent some out to willing participants in this experiment):
Who wants some free smart copies of Nemonymous 3, 4 and 5 delivered to you in UK free, whereby your only promise is to leave some anonymously in libraries etc. in your area? You may keep one of each for yourself. Or more, without me ever likely to know!
Please email me on dflewis48@hotmail.com. UK only.

http://nullimmortalis.wordpress.com/quotes-about-dfl/ A selection of good or bad (and a few frankly ludicrous) quotes about me. Indifferent ones probably forgotten. Perhaps pretentious for me to have listed them here for several years. We all share a fallible humanity.

Des, have you read "A Season in Carcosa"? Joe Pulver has a little fun with the Karl Edward Wagner quote about you in his story.

No, Pete, that info is completely new to me!
But thanks for the tip-off! :)

In an earlier novella of mine - Weirdtongue (The InkerMen Press 2010) - as well as much else happening, Blasphemy Fitzworth (the Cat's Meat Man) was involved, I recall, in an illicit meat trade between UK and Eastern Europe.

Meanwhile, I have an Apocryfan!

Just read here on Feb 14:

“…in ‘The Apocryphan’, Bonnyville seems like a place one could genuinely stroll around, dig behind, poke around in; there’s an authentic sense of place. And the characters that inhabit this novella are three-dimensional too. The fact that the story is told in many interrelated brief sections, rather than as a single clump, also helps to open out the piece still further and lighten it more; or perhaps the structure was necessitated by the spry content (the tone is spry, but it is dark sprightliness.) And yes, the mode is melancholy despite the briskness; and the briskness is luxurious, not hectic; and this peculiar mix of rates of flow and density of detail is handled with supreme skill.”

THE LAST GOLD OF DECAYED STARS, a novella that I've just finished real-time reviewing here: http://nullimmortalis.wordpress.com/201 ... yed-stars/ seems to be prophesying the potential repercussions of this evening's asteroid. (And today's meteor shower in Central Russia).

Quote:
Abstract of Story: -

Terminus X is a story that is based on an unprecedented disaster when the sun ejects a massive cloud of charged plasma particles and lethal radiation. When the solar wind reaches Earth, it destroys electronics and heats the Earth's core to a point the planet is shattered into fragments around its molten core and moon.

One hundred years later society slowly reorganizes itself, forcing a government system onto the survivors: Xigen and HumaniX. Any leftover survivors are then placed into a five-tiered cast system consisting of: Priests, Communicators, Warriors, Outcasts, and Dregs.

HumaniX government is advanced in technology and its citizens live in huge sky cities that travel through the gravity wakes between the moon and Earth's molten core. The Xigen are a lesser-advanced government, which lives on the floating landmasses, struggling to survive. The two governments have been constantly at war over water, food and land.

Struggling in a hostile environment, Travis Medwin and Nelson Porter conduct illegal deals and eventually join a dangerous race that could mark the outcome of their lives. But after being dragged into a conflict between two warring factions, their goal suddenly changes to that of survival as they fight to discover the truth that's plaguing the struggling remains of humanity.


Just a heads up, the first part of Terminus X is now available completely free. So download your free copy now. The first part of this free promotion will be free for today and tomorrow. Then the next free batch will be on March: 21, 22.

I could do with all your help in spreading the news about this free offer by tweeting it or using facebook Terminus X. Its free and I am sure many people will like it.

Here is a tweet if you want to do it quickly.

Just noticed that Mark West says some nice things about my short story collection Spare Parts on Goodreads. "A sturdy collection from Stuart Young, with some tight writing and smart plots. Well worth a read, a writer to follow."
