Slice of Life - book cover
Tuesday, July 14 2009 @ 01:28 PM EST
"Slice of Life" is a collection of short stories by Australian author Paul Haines, scheduled to be published in September 2009 by The Mayne Press. It includes his Ditmar award winning story "The Devil in Mr Pussy (or How I Found God Inside My Wife)" along with 16 other, equally disturbing, tales. The cover has just been finalised and is on its way to print. It features an illustration by Jordi Elias and an overall inspiration to the old Mayflower and Panther novels of the 70s and early 80s, especially those of Michael Moorcock. The inside text is set with much the same inspiration - being extremely simple and modelled somewhat after the Mayflower release of Moorcock's 'Book of Martyrs'.
