He is Risen: The Twilight Language of Nigel Kneale

Just in time for Easter, this unforgivably late post offers some details on The Twilight Language of Nigel Kneale, which is now available by mail order from Strange Attractor Press at an obscenely reasonable price and comes with a limited edition poster. Of course it’s highly likely that you already have your own copy by now – but just in case you haven’t, or have leant it out to someone and are already regretting it, then this is what you need to know.

Edited by S.S. Sandhu,The Twilight Language of Nigel Kneale is a limited-edition Risograph book – published by Texte und Töne in collaboration with the Colloquium for Unpopular Culture – to mark A Cathode Ray Séance: The Haunted Worlds of Nigel Kneale, a day-long event held in New York, right after the storms and tidal waves, November 2012.

The book was designed by Rob Carmichael and ‘really is a beautiful and fascinating piece of work’, according to books editor at the Belbury Parish Magazine.

Contributors include: Sophia Al-Maria, Bilge Ebiri, Mark Fisher, William Fowler, Ken Hollings, Paolo Javier, Roger Luckhurst, China Miéville, Drew Mulholland, David Pike, Mark Pilkington, Joanna Ruocco, Sukhdev Sandhu, Dave Tompkins, Michael Vazquez, and Evan Calder Williams.

Copies come with an 11 x 17 Risograph poster produced by Rob Carmichael for the original Cathode Ray Séance event

And now I return to the sleep of ages – wake me when our spaceship has been uncovered again.
