I'm absolutely thrilled and proud to have taken delivery of the first few copies of "Octomorphosis" which is a little book of Unrealist stories based around my paintings. I think it has turned out beautifully. The stories were all written by the members of the Portsmouth Writers' Hub (please see my previous post if you don't know about this wonderful group) and are a wild mixture of Gothic Noir, surrealist imaging and broad comedy. In short something for every dedicated fan of the absurd and downright odd.
As well as the amazing stories, for the authors among you there are very useful creative writing tips about inspiration and responding to your surroundings from James Bicheno, Jacqui Pack and Tessa Ditner.
I've added a few black and white sketches relevant to the stories.
The book is available from the Portsmouth branch of Blackwells Bookshops or directly from me. It costs £6.99 (Plus P&P). ISBN 978-0-9956513-0-2
