An Evening of Queer Gothic Horror with Leon Craig and Alison Rumfitt
21st February 2022
Blackwell’s welcome two incredibly exciting new authors to the shop for an evening of queer Gothic horror – Leon Craig and Alison Rumfitt will be discussing their brilliant debuts Parallel Hells and Tell Me I’m Worthless with author and poet Rosie Garland.
About the books:
Parallel Hells is a deliciously strange debut collection that draws on folklore and gothic horror in refreshingly inventive ways to explore queer identity, love, power and the complicated nature of being human.
Tell Me I’m Worthless is a dark, unflinching haunted house novel that takes readers from the well of the literary gothic, up through Brighton’s queer scene, and out into the heart of modern-day trans experience in the UK.
Doors: 18.30, event starts: 18.45
Tickets for the event are £3.00. Parallel Hells and Tell Me I’m Worthless will be available to purchase on the night and Leon and Alison will be signing copies after the talk. If you would like a signed copy but cannot make the event, please contact Blackwell’s Bookshop on 0161 274 3331 or email@example.com and we can arrange this for you.
