The Quarantined City redux! Coming Soon From Infinity Plus

Very, very pleased to be able to say that readers will finally be able to find out how The Quarantined City ends soon...

Infinity Plus will be publishing the complete work as an ebook and paperback this summer. For those of you who've not read any of its earlier incarnation, The Quarantined City combines elements of horror and the uncanny with the influence of writers like Borges and Haruki Marukami. Plus a bit of Twin Peaks and quite a lot of references to spicy food.

The Quarantined City: sealed off from the outside world, with only the sight of the ocean to remind its inhabitants of life beyond. No one knows why the city has been quarantined and conspiracy theories abound.

But for Fellows life continues largely as before. He walks the streets, hunts out rare books; the sun continues to shine and the gulls circle above.

There’s the small matter of the ghost haunting his house, but Fellows doesn’t let himself think of that.

But when he tracks down a story by the reclusive writer known as Boursier, his old certainties fade as he becomes aware that the secrets of the city, the ghostly child, and the quarantine itself, might be more connected than he thinks…

I'm really excited about this story again and it couldn't be in better hands than Keith Brooke and Infinity Plus (who published Falling Over). Why not check out some of their other titles in the meantime?
