Book launch, Ciudad doliente de Dios

I am happy to announce that my novel Ciudad doliente de Dios, recently published by Alfaguara, will have its London launch next 5 December, at the Mexican Embassy Residence, at 6.00 pm. The event will be in English.

The novel was inspired in William Blake’s Prophetic Poems. I will be in conversation with Ana Elena González Treviño, PhD, another Blake expert and head of the Centre for Mexican Studies in the United Kingdom.

The address is 48 Belgrave Square, SW1X 8QR.

Stories for the Day of the Dead

Today, November the 2nd, is the traditional Mexican celebration of the Día de Muertos (the Day of the Dead), a perfect date to see the launch of A Miscellany of Death and Folly, described by its publishers, Egaeus Press, as ‘An entertainment including works from some of the finest authors of the weird and morbid working today’. 

I am most happy to be part of this miscellany with my short story ‘A Monument’, sharing its pages with other 15 authors. The book, again in Egaeus’ description, ‘is a lithographically printed, 250 page sewn hardback with colour endpapers; limited to just 300 copies’, and can be ordered here:

Egaeus Press’ books are jewels, and I hope you’ll enjoy this one!
