by Bradford Middleton,

$4.99 ebook, $14.95 paperback

Jack is in a rut and has been for some time but ultimately it is a rut he has grown used too, even fond of. Aged thirty-nine he lives in a small room in a nice area of south-east London. We meet him on a Saturday and things seem to be going just fine until that it he tries to go out to the pub. It is then it all starts getting weird; alien abductions and attacks on public buildings but most bizarrely of all a woman who finds Jack sexually attractive. Clare changes his life forever and suddenly Jack’s life is moving. Within three weeks they decide to go to Brighton and everything seems to be just perfect for the first time in a long time with the realisation that Clare and Lisa share everything including him. It is however at his fortieth birthday party when Kerry, his only friend at work, falls for Lisa that his life begins to unravel.

BRADFORD MIDDLETON, the UK author of our recent pulp gem DIVE, is doing a book launch event at a local dive in Brighton. Taking place in the infamous Bee’s Mouth on Western Road, 6th December from 5-8pm. Other local writers of ill-repute will also be in attendance.
