Andrez Bergen announces “ASP’s ‘The Tobacco-Stained Sky’ anthology is now out there!”

Like a fine drop of wine filtered into a dusty bottle stuck down in a dark, dim underground bunker, we’ve been brewing — er, cellaring — the anthology The Tobacco-Stained Sky for over a year, and now (at last) the beastie has been published.

It’s just appeared on Amazon, but you can pick up the trade paperback direct from the publishers (Another Sky Press) for $5.46 + ♥ + postage.

TSMG Book Launch 10-8-11 smaller

Melbourne/Australia launch party of TSMG, 10 August 2011

Care for a wayward synopsis?
In a tightly-wound nutshell, Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat is a sci-fi/noir/post-apocalyptic tome (with a sense of humour) – and it’s set in Melbourne, Australia, as the last city in the world. So we always had to do a book launch there.
The fact that it’s Andrez’s hometown is an added bonus.

Tokyo book launch – been there, done that!

Well, we actually did go through it with the Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat book launch on 25th March and I’m still recovering – as we went right through from 6:00pm to 6:30am.

It was bloody brilliant, too.

Aside from the novel launch per se, we quite conveniently skipped out on any of the usual aftershocks that’ve been plaguing Japan lately, no-one glowed in the dark, and we screened The Maltese Falcon and The Third Man interspersed with anime gems like Tokyo Marble Chocolate and Mamoru Oshii’s Tachiguish-Retsuden; heck, we even showed The Karate Kid.

Tokyo book launch of Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat: 25 March 2011

These are strange times here in Japan, for all too obvious reasons – think that insanely big earthquake and tsunami on March 11 – and sometimes it feels like we’re collectively treading water awaiting the next Big Thing to transpire. Meanwhile the nuclear reactors in Fukushima (230km north-east of Tokyo) still belch scary looking clouds and we get shaken by dozens of aftershocks everyday.

It’s been mad timing for my new novel to come out; teaches me to write a yarn that’s been described in terms of “post-apocalyptic” and “dystopian”; I think I’ll veer towards the “noir” side of things here – since I’m having the Tokyo book launch of Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat on Friday 25th March at the Pink Cow in Shibuya.
