The Wanderer

I slightly dread having to give a synopsis of my book, The Wanderer, let alone a terse summary, as it’s a touch sprawling, and I’m not at all sure what’s it’s all about.

But if forced to offer a high-concept précis, it would go something along the lines of this: ‘The Highlander meets Arthur Machen’s The Three Imposters, meets M.P. Shiel’s The Purple Cloud. With booze.’ Or, as its somewhat fustian immortal narrator might phrase it: ‘With topery, sottishness, and befuddlement.’ There’s a lot of quaffing in the book. Many, many libations poured down throats in honour of Bacchus.

So, in that spirit, I like to invite you to raise a glass to its publication on the evening of Thursday 4th September, from 7pm, at Treadwell’s Books, 33 Store Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7BS. Would be lovely to see as many of you as possible there.

Though, be warned, many of the book’s drinkers do end up straying into awful eldritch realms…

Please RSVP, as it would be good to have an idea of numbers. Either on Facebook here, or through the poll here.
