Thin Places

Tom Fletcher
Authors:
Tom Fletcher

Come and visit a world of subtle horror and dark fantasy by master of creeping horror Tom Fletcher, a world in which insidious forces permeate the folds of reality, twisting it one strand at a time. This omnibus includes the novels The Leaping, The Thing on the Shore and The Ravenglass Eye, with a bonus chapter from Tom's new fantasy series, The Factory Trilogy, included. THE LEAPING: Jack finished university three years ago, but he's still stuck in a dead-end job in a sinister call-centre in Manchester. When the beautiful(and rich) Jennifer comes into his life, he thinks he has finally found his ticket out of there. Trouble is that his boss is interested in Jennifer as well, and there's something strangely bestial about him . . . So when Jennifer buys Fell House, a mysterious old mansion in remote Cumbria, a house party on a legendary scale seems like the perfect escape. But as the party spins out of control on a seemingly neverending night, they must face up to the terrifying possibility that not all their guests may be human - and some of them want to feed. THE THING ON THE SHORE: When Artemis Black is assigned to manage a call centre on behalf of a mysterious multinational corporation called Interext, he decides to implement a unique personal project, installing cutting-edge AI technology in the centre. But this 'technology' has other effects. Soon, one of Artemis' employees, Arthur, becomes aware of an intangible landscape inside the labyrinthine systems of the call-centre - a landscape in which he can feel an otherworldly consciousness stirring . . . THE RAVENGLASS EYE: Edie is a barmaid at The Tup in the small town of Ravenglass. So far, so normal. But when she is caught in a freak earthquake she subsequently develops 'The Eye' - a power that allows her glimpses of other worlds and strange events. At first Edie passes her visions off as nightmares, but when a person is found murdered, she realises that she has seen this death before, and that her visions are not imaginary, but real. Mankind had better hope that Edie finds a solution to the murders soon, because it's more than just the influence of The Eye that has entered the world. A power far more malevolent has been released, and that power is hungry for death.

Gleam

Tom Fletcher
Authors:
Tom Fletcher

The Factory is the law - but Wild Alan is about to discover that law does not mean justice. The gargantuan Factory of Gleam is an ancient, hulking edifice of stone, metal and glass ruled over by chaste alchemists and astronomer priests. As millennia have passed, the population has decreased, and now only the central district is fully inhabited and operational; the outskirts have been left for the wilderness to reclaim. This decaying, lawless zone is the Discard, and Wild Alan's home. Clever, arrogant and perpetually angry, Wild Alan is both loved and loathed by the Discard's misfits. He's convinced that the Gleam authorities were behind the disaster that killed his parents and his ambition is to prove it. But he's about to uncover more than he bargained for.'Anyone looking for a science fiction tale of grim darkness should definitely pick this one up'- Starburst

'Fantastic from the first sentence to the last . . . These books are the rarest of things, great rollicking fun combined with an emotional punch' - John GwynneThe Greatcoats - legendary heroes, arbiters of justice . . . or notorious traitors?

The Thing on the Shore

Tom Fletcher
Authors:
Tom Fletcher

The second in the series that began with The Leaping, set in a malevolent call-centre that just might be alive - affirming Tom Fletcher as the dark master for the 'temp' generation.When Artemis Black is assigned to manage a call-centre on behalf of a mysterious multinational corporation called Interext, the isolation and remoteness of the place encourage him to implement a decidedly unhinged personal project, installing what purports to be cutting-edge AI technology, with a real, 'human' voice, on the automated answering systems. As a result of Artemis' actions, one of his employees, Arthur, becomes aware of an intangible landscape inside the labyrinthine systems of the call-centre - a landscape in which he can feel some kind of otherworldly consciousness stirring and in which, perhaps as a result of his father's increasingly alarming eccentricities, he feels that he could find his recently deceased mother. Arthur takes refuge in this belief as his father, his job, and his house slowly deteriorate around him. He begins to conflate the mysterious, interstitial region that exists down the phonelines with the sea, as that was where his mother drowned. In a way he is right - Artemis' meddlings have attracted something, it is just not as benevolent as he thinks . . .

riverrun books

Quercus proudly announces our new imprint, riverrun

This week we celebrate the official launch of the riverrun list – Quercus’s new literary imprint. riverrun has been set up to showcase the literary fiction, upmarket crime and top class non-fiction that we have built up at Quercus. For years we’ve been curating a list that, in its diversity, has one feature to mark it out – the writing. We’ve found talent in many different forms, and it’s the writers themselves that make riverrun what it is. Choosing the name of the new imprint – riverrun – was more complicated than we could have imagined, but all along the solution was across the road. A river. It is, of course, the first word of one of the most famous – and probably unread – books ever written, Joyce’s Finnegans Wake. We hope our imprint will attain the first quality and our books will avoid the second. We will publish books we intend to be international, as relevant to Sydney as Sydenham – which brings me back to Joyce: in the particular is contained the universal. Jon Riley Publisher riverrun
