Multi-award winning writer Robert Hood will sign his definitive collection at leading Sydney bookstore, Kinokuniya.
PERIPHERAL VISIONS is a unique reference collection that includes all of Robert Hood’s 44 ghost stories to date, three of them especially written for this volume.
Kinokuniya (Level 2, The Galeries, 500 George Street, Sydney NSW 2000) will host the signing on the 16th of July at 6:30pm.
Garth Nix, one of Australia’s greatest fantasy authors, will introduce Robert and special guest Nick Stathopolous, who will both talk about their work related to the book. Both Robert and Nick will be available for signings afterwards with copies of both the premium hard cover edition and the trade paperback in store for purchase.
Robert Hood has been called everything from “a brilliant fantasist” (Jack Dann) to “Aussie horror’s wicked godfather” (Black Magazine). He is a highly respected, award winning author, considered by many to be one of Australia’s grand masters of horror and weird fiction. In a career that spans 40 years, he has published speculative fiction of all kinds—including most notably this collection of 44 short stories that feature ghosts, hauntings, and spectral horrors. Further information on his work can be found at: www.roberthood.net and www.roberthoodwriter.com.
The cover is a wonderful piece of art by Multi Archibald Prize and 2015 BP Portrait Prize finalist, Nick Stathopoulos, and the hard cover edition has more of Nick’s original work for each section of the book.
