By Christopher Brownsword

Conceived in the bleak northern wilderness of the Steel City (Sheffield, England); not so much as a book as a talisman designed to shock the ego out of its safety zone by an act of guerrilla-style conflict.

Not intended as an epic novel with a linear trajectory (which might be read once, then quickly disposed of) but rather to create resonant patterns whose confluent points align, overlap and bifurcate at various junctures throughout the text and yield their deeper connections over more than a single reading, and whose level of intensity is maximised and sustained within a limited spatial frame.

A concise masterpiece of post-industrial surrealism that owes as much to the atavistic resurgence of Austin Osman Spare as to its obvious literary ancestors such as Artaud and Bataille.
