If you’re near London on 20 October, 7pm: come to the launch of the terminal publication from spec-fic press Jurassic London, where the marvellous Jared Shurin and Anne Perry have given so many writers invaluable breaks and boosts, and put us in such gorgeous books. The FB invitation is here. Read more about the collection & contributors (among them, South Africans Louis Greenberg, S.L. Grey, Charlie Human, Joe Vaz, Joey Hi-Fi and Sam Wilson) – here. I’ve got a little story in there about bronze-age warrior ghosts. Also, the “extinction” dress code means I will almost certainly have to attend in a lion suit, so there’s that to look forward to. And isn’t this the prettiest nouveau-dino-dodo invitation you’ve ever seen? Jurassic will be sorely missed, but this is a very grand way to go out.
