One of our founder members is about to release his latest book and run some events around the launch. Hats off to Rohan he's managed to get some great reviews from the likes of Iris Murdoch and The Guardian. Here's some info from him.
Author Rohan Quine
The Beasts of Electra Drive will have a two-part launch: first, on 6 April at Waterstones in Covent Garden (6.00-7.30 p.m., 9-13 Garrick Street, WC2E 9AU), launching alongside Kill Land by Guardian blogger Dan Holloway; and then on 12 April at the London Book fair #LBF18 (2.45 p.m. at the ALLi stand, 1D48), launching alongside Kill Land and Jane Davis’s Smash all the Windows. Literary fiction with a touch of magical realism and a dusting of horror, it is a prequel to Rohan’s previous titles, which were reviewed by The Guardian, New York Press, Iris Murdoch and others, as linked to from here and here.
And here's the book's blurb: From Hollywood Hills mansions and Century City towers, to South Central motels and the oceanside refinery, havoc and love are wrought across a mythic L.A., through the creations of games designer Jaymi, in a unique explosion of glamour and beauty, horror and enchantment, celebrating the mechanisms and magic of creativity itself.
