Faction Paradox: Against Nature

FP Against Nature.jpg ? In Stock £17.99

You will make war with the beast of the city, and the people will be grateful, and in this way will your fame be fortified.

 

Every fifty-two years, the God Xiuhtecuhtli – incarnate for the purpose as a young Mexica male – would give himself in sacrifice in order that the universe should be renewed and the passage of time

would continue as it had done before. Those born to other cultures and other eras might be forgiven for their failure to appreciate this great and selfless act.

 

It was therefore strange that such a profound understanding should arise in one so far removed from the heart of this world, both veteran and victim of the terrible, endless war in heaven, a man the Mexica knew briefly as Coahualxiu bearing a death wish the size of creation…

Faction Paradox: A Romance in Twelve Parts

fp romance in 12 parts.jpg ? In Stock £14.99

‘What’s that? Did I hear you ask what romance has to do with anything, little Cousin? You do surprise me. Why Romance is Story itself, nothing less than that. Romance is the tale with which a cunning man winkles out a widow’s secrets and an honest one breaks his beloved’s heart. Romance locks us away and sets us free, brings us great pleasure and also great pain, is the thread which binds all other stories together. Dear me, little Cousin, I expected better of you…’

— Godfather Valentine, Dresden, 1928

 

“Simple in vision, incredibly broad in scope, A Romance in Twelve Parts is quite simply the most accomplished Who-related books I have read in years.” – Peter McAlpine, Enlightenment, May 2012

 

“The most extraordinary anthology of short fiction in any genre I can remember reading in the last few years” – Rhcard Wright, author of Thy Fearful Symmetry.

Faction Paradox: Weapons Grade Snake Oil

weapons grade snake oil.jpg ? In Stock £17.99

“There she goes. Running flat out. Little Sojourner. Not really dressed for a sprint. Moves pretty fast for a woman of her age though. She’s carrying something. Hard to see from this far away.

Maybe, if we moved a little closer.

Sojourner has a gun in each hand. She swings them, awkwardly as she dashes across the gravel. Barefoot. Her evening dress looks a mess. That backpack looks heavy. There’s a sheen to her dark skin. But, look; it isn’t sweat. It’s blood.

That isn’t a pattern on her dress either. That’s blood too. Her braids are spraying a trail of red in their wake. That’s a lot of blood.

It’s not her blood.”
