From the prodigious imagination of cult writer Alan Bilton, author of The Known and Unknown Sea and The Sleepwalkers’ Ball, comes a new collection of strange and unsettling short stories, poised midway between horror and comedy, the deeply mysterious and the utterly absurd. Travelling from Paris to Venice to Walla Walla, Washington – as well as exploring uncanny places not found on any map – Bilton opens up trapdoors and secret passages between the everyday and the fantastical, a labyrinth whose secrets leads one deeper and deeper into the unknown.

A Parisian postman searches for a house that isn’t there, whilst in Venice a young couple lose each other falling in and out of time. Closer to home, dogs and people and pills are missing, whilst the fleas seem to get everywhere. As for the Pool on Wiene Street …. well, it’s probably wiser not to dip one’s toes…

At every step, the curious, the lost, and the unwary stumble through an opening to another world – a world unlike any other in contemporary fiction.

Anywhere Out of the World by Alan Bilton.

“As uncanny as Psycho and as funny as a Monty Python sketch, Anywhere out of the World is an antidote to our conservative literary culture and essential reading for anyone still interested in the possibilities of literature” Novelist and short story writer DD Johnstone
“the book is something akin to a fevered anxiety dream, the true horror not so much the lack of clarity but rather the nagging feeling it might arrive all too suddenly.”
Read Full Review HereJon Doyle, Wake the Deaf
“A man is sucked back into the nightmare past of his school’s grubby swimming pool… a bridge built by day is dismantled overnight… at the edge of town uncertain territory threatens… under the feet of animals and history all is reduced to mud and entropy.”
Novelist, poet and short story writer Jo Mazelis

A musical playlists to accompany the book created by the folks over at Wake The Deaf.
