 Post subject: As me a question!
PostPosted: Mon Oct 14, 2013 2:03 pm 
Hi everyone,

I'm soon going to be making a short film (basically, me being interviewed) about my forthcoming novel from Infinity Plus, Hairy London. If you'd like to ask me a question for this, based on the back-cover blurb below, or if you'd like to ask any other question, please do, and I'll do my best to get it used.

Enjoy! :D

Steve...

STEPHEN PALMER: HAIRY LONDON

What is love?

One evening at the Suicide Club three gentlemen discuss this age-old question – and thus a wager is made. Dissolute fop Sheremy Pantomile, veteran philosopher Kornukope Wetherbee and down-on-his-luck Velvene Orchardtide all bet their fortunes on finding the answer amidst the dark alleys of a phantasmagorical Edwardian London.

But then, overnight, London Town is covered in hair. How the trio of adventurers cope with this unusual plague, and what conclusions they come to regarding love is the subject of this surreal, surprising and fast-paced novel.

And the East End threatens revolution…

What an incredible premise! Can't think of any questions (apart from the obvious 'where did the idea come from') but will certainly be interested in reading the book.

Thanks Andrew! I'll put you down for 'where did the idea come from'...

The novel is a sort of continuation of my short story Xana-La, which appeared last year in Eibovale's Whare Are We Going?

Excellent, I enjoyed Xana-La also.

How big an influence is Robert Louis Stevenson?

Can you refine my question to "where did the idea for the hair come from?", as otherwise it looks like I've asked the most generic question imaginable :)

Will do - and it's a vital question, with, for me, a very unusual answer...

Ah... the joys of setting-up. :D
