SMELL THE INK

My collection went to press yesterday, so here's hoping we got all those typos (or lits, I believe they're actually called).

Can't wait to see / hold / smell (!) it next week.

It will be available direct from Salt initially, or for pre-order from Amazon or the Book Depository before its official publication date of November 1st.

I imagine there will be a whole host of chances to win a copy here.

Here's the blurb...

A writer takes his research a little too far; a couple, stricken with guilt and grief, prepare a last meal; a group of swingers is rocked by the arrival of a new couple; a man takes a train journey to learn how to kill again; a deformed brother and sister exact revenge half a mile underground; a modern-day messiah astonishes a criminal gang; a witch grows weary of her unemployed husband; a pair of luckless gamblers are convinced they can beat the system; and a father is forever tormented by the few minutes his back was turned. Just some of the stories in this award-winning collection.
