'You Should Come With Me Now' with M. John Harrison and Lara Pawson

2 Nov 2017 - 7.00PM

Considered one of the most important stylists of modern fantasy and science fiction working today, and a pioneer of the New Wave, join award-winning writer M. John Harrison as he discusses and reads from his new collection of stories, You Should Come With Me Now, with renowned author and journalist Lara Pawson. 

M. John's work sits at the boundaries between genres – horror and science fiction, fantasy and travel writing – just as his stories traverse the no man’s land between the spatial and the spiritual. In this, his first new collection in 15 years,we see the master of the New Wave present new visions of the British landscape, as well the deterioration of international politics, that are as horrifying as they are timely. From gelatinous invaders from the astral plane to siblings at loggerheads because of preferences over pets, these are weird stories for weird times. In an age that is both ‘bland and rotten’, the only glimpses of respite lie in delusion.
