Aeon Press is delighted to highlight the release of the 2nd Edition of David Murphy’s collection of fine speculative fiction short stories, Lost Notes, first published in 2004.
For many years out of print, you can now own your own copy for the special reduced price of 10 euro total (i.e. including postage & packaging). What’s more, for an even lower price of 4 euro, you can purchase a downloadable pdf copy.
Here’s some info on this outstanding collection from one of Ireland’s most prolific award-winning authors of speculative fiction:
Sixteen tales of alternate Irelands, alternate worlds, gathered together in a sophisticated and startlingly diverse collection told at hypnotic pace. They are the stories of a cynical yet mysteriously naive voice, the voice of the outsider who remains incredulous when confronted with the absurdities of life.
“‘Lost Notes’ is a story that approaches greatness. Attempts at description can only diminish it. There are certain passages in great music that, whenever I hear them, I have only to close my eyes to be released from corporeality. ‘Lost Notes’ had the same effect on me.” – David Marcus
“It’s a rare talent who can show us a glimpse of what Ireland is and what it could become. David Murphy doesn’t believe in glimpses. He shows it all, every subtle distinction, every smell, every shade. You will remember this book.” – Roelof Goudriaan
