Where Are We Going?

Allen Ashley (The Elastic Book of Numbers, Subtle Edens, Catastrophia) returns to the anthology format with an ambitious themed collection of stories based on the idea that the world we live in is still something of an unknown planet, with spectacular encounters, adventures and mysteries still very much possible.

The result is a collection of tales of urban decay and angst – jaunts to unexpected and unexplained kingdoms – holidays and excursions to strange and unnerving destinations. A familiar earth that’s slightly skewed – or maybe never was.  This is a collection of journeys of the imagination from some of the best authors in modern Slipstream, SF, Fantasy and Horror.

Allen Ashley writes short stories, novels, poems and lyrics. His novel “The Planet Suite” (TTA Press, 1997) was highly acclaimed by Brian Aldiss as “The course for the future”. Allen’s debut collection of stories “Somnambulists” (Elastic Press, 2004) was shortlisted for the British Fantasy Society award as was his recent collection “Once and Future Cities” (Eibonvale, 2009). This is Allen Ashley’s fourth full-length editorial project. His first “The Elastic Book Of Numbers” (Elastic Press, 2005) won the BFS award for Best Anthology. “Dreaming Spheres”, his collection of poems with Sarah Doyle, is due from PS Publishing later this year. www.allenashley.com
