Event description

Description

Join us in a whopper launch of Eugen Bacon's two books: Writing Speculative Fiction (Macmillan) & Claiming T-Mo (Meerkat Press). Presented by award-winning poet, novelist, short story writer Dominique Hecq.



Claiming T-Mo

A lush interplanetary tale. An immortal Sayneth priest flouts the conventions of a matriarchal society by naming his child. This initiates chaos, unleashing a Jekyll-and-Hyde child—T-Mo/ Odysseus. The story unfolds through the eyes of three distinctive women: his mother, his wife, his daughter, and their unbearable choices.



Writing Speculative Fiction: Creative and Critical Approaches by Eugen Bacon

This approachable book is about vibrant storytelling of speculative fiction that crosses genre. Unlike a typical genre studies work, this is a cross-disciplinary book that scrutinises the characteristics of science fiction, fantasy and horror, and considers the potential of literary speculative fiction.
