In the Eyes of Mr Fury to be reprinted!

Last November at World Fantasy, I met the folks at Valancourt Books. They specialize in reprints of both supernatural fiction and long lost gay classics. I told them about a book that melded those two things together: In the Eyes of Mr. Fury by Philip Ridley. It’s a kind of a dark gay fairytale in the magical realist mode, set in London. Full of dream logic, it’s a homoerotic coming of age story, something Angela Carter might write if she were a gay men.

Anyway, Valancourt is reprinting the novel–along with Ridley’s other work. And the new cover is glorious!

Fury

Liturgy of Ice (A Variation) now available! A dark homoerotic fairytale

Liturgy of Ice was inspired by one of my favorite fairytales, The Snow Queen. I use the fairytale imagery as a mediation isolation and loneliness.

Other inspirations: “The Sweetest Chill,” by Siouxsie & the Banshees; Philip Ridley’s novel In the Eyes of Mr. Fury.

It’s on Kindle here.
