It is with immense pleasure that we announce the book signing for Faerie Apocalypse by Jason Franks – a literary fantasy novel. Jason describes the book as “Blood Meridian meets Stardust” – tantalising indeed! Certainly our submissions editors thought so.
The novel will be published in 2017 – over coming months we will narrow down the release period.
Jason Franks writes comics, prose and source code. His first novel, BLOODYWATERS, was short-listed for the 2012 Aurealis Award for Best Horror Novel.
He is the writer of the THE SIXSMITHS graphic novels (a Ledger Awards finalist) and the comic series LEFT HAND PATH (also shot-listed for an Aurealis Award), as well as numerous short stories in prose and comics. A collection of his mainstream short stories was collected in UNGENRED by Black House Comics.
Franks has published work in most genres, but he is most comfortable at in the darker reaches of speculative fiction, although his writing is often humorous. His protagonists are likely to be villains or anti-heroes and the Devil is a recurring figure in his work.
Franks has lived in South Africa, the USA and Japan. He currently resides in Melbourne, Australia.
