TTA publish a new collection from a new author.
"Paul Meloy published his first story in The Third Alternative (now Black Static – thanks Paul!). ‘The Last Great Paladin of Idle Conceit’ was a truly remarkable debut, and he followed it with stories like ‘Raiders’, ‘Don’t Touch the Blackouts’, ‘Dying in the Arms of Jean Harlow’ and the British Fantasy Award winning ‘Black Static’(hence those thanks). We decided to publish a later story, ‘Islington Crocodiles’, in Interzone, which gained Paul a lot of new fans (as well as, it’s fair to say, leaving some IZ readers slack-jawed!).
All these stories are collected here, along with several others published elsewhere, including ‘The Vague’ (published outside Britain in the British Invasion anthology) and two previously unpublished stories ‘The Last Place on Earth for Snow’ and ‘An Ocean by Handfuls’.
Paul also has a story 'All Mouth' in Black Static 6.
