Infinity

So now, the latest episode from my A book with no name to see the light is "Infinity", which is included in Unthology 7, the latest collection of short fiction from Unthank Books. Here's their blurb:

Flinch at the things that twitch in the windows a mile up from the city streets. Let text messages lead you towards a man that you already know is going to mess with your head. Find the meaning of life in your own lobotomy. Now, the ghost of Gaudi whispers in your ear, urging you to get yourself another lover, insisting it’s all going to be smooth and comfortable this time.

And beyond that is a little room and then a large room and a room. And in through there there’s another and beyond another and a room beyond. And from here they go into another room and that’s the little room right there. And then the main room. The room where it happens and the room where they prepare for it to happen and the room where they go after....

You can see more about Unthology 7 (and buy it – in its print and e-book incarnations) here.

And Unthank Books are going to publish my novel Country Life in October - but more about that later.
