Just a quick note to state that we have a launch event scheduled for Caledonia Dreamin’! It will take place at Kilmarnock, Scotland, in the Dick Institute (actually a substantial museum and cultural centre). The event starts at 18:15 on 2nd of April. See here for more details: Sadly I wont be able to be there myself, and I rather miss the chance to meet the people involved in this exceptional collection – but it should be a great event, so if you can possibly make it up there, do so! Entry is free and copies will be available of course – no doubt with a bit of a discount! Also readings from those present.

Here at last is the first public look at the cover for Rustblind and Silverbright, though it has been on my facebook pages for a few days now. The book is currently at the printers and I am awaiting the delivery of the proof copy, to tell me if everything is ok. As you can see, this one is an even more bizarre cover than usual in terms of structure with a massive rear ‘contents map’ on the back that extends right onto the rear flap.
With the launch of this, the first true anthology I have edited, we are planning a big event in London entitled Slipstream Journeys, which will bring several new books by several specialist presses together into one evening of readings and wine.
The books involved will be:
- Rustblind and Silverbright: Slipstream Stories of the Railway, edited by David Rix
- Defeated Dogs, by Quentin S Crisp
- Stardust by Nina Allan
- Helen’s Story, by Rosanne Rabinowitz
- Jane, by P.F. Jeffery
The event will take place at the Review Bookshop, Peckham on the 4th July at 7PM. I hope you can make it. There will be wine to drink and authors to meet. Readings to listen to and books to buy!
