Geordie writer and poet Lee Carrick begins the trilogy with a Venice-based tale of a threesome called The Book. It’s a sort of homage to Bret Easton Ellis, so it’s not for the squeamish among you, folks!
We go from wannabe American Psycho to wannabe French monarch in King Louis XXIII, another slice of alternative history from that master of the surreal, Edinburgh-based author Tom Greenwood.
And sandwiched between those offerings is A Shelter from the Storm, a ghostly mystery story from one of our favourite ex-pats, Leith-born storyteller Ron A. Sewell.
Enjoy your weekend!
