Guillermo Stitch | 5 comments Running only for June, NOW is your chance to win your own signed copy of Literature®, the debut of Guillermo Stitch which has been hailed a "masterpiece" by the San Francisco Book Review.

"We don't know exactly when Literature® takes place and we don't know exactly where. All we know is that Philip Marlowe would fit right in.

We don't get Marlowe though. We get Billy Stringer. And Billy is on nobody's trail.

He's the prey.

The day hasn't begun very well for Billy. He just messed up his first big assignment, he's definitely going to be late for work, his girlfriend won't get back to him and, for reasons she has something to do with, he's dressed like a clown.

Also, he's pretty sure someone is going to kill him today. But then, that's an occupational hazard, when you're a terrorist.

He's a bookworm too, which wouldn't be a problem–or particularly interesting–except that in Billy's world, fiction is banned. Reading it is what makes him an outlaw.

Why? Because people need to get to work.

It's fight or flight time for Billy and he's made his choice. But he has to see Jane, even if it's for the last time–to explain it all to her, before she finds out what he has become.

That means staying alive for a little while...

...and the odds are against him."


"Wonderfully written...a beautifully rendered story, mixing the cynicism and moral ambiguity of classic noir fiction with startling flashes of humour and disarmingly tender moments."
E.O.HIGGINS,
CONVERSATIONS WITH SPIRITS, UNBOUND/PENGUIN

"A clever interweaving of speculative fiction, dystopian vision and classic noir, what’s most striking about Literature® is the quality of the writing...lean and spare with moments of beauty fizzing through...it is also very funny."
KATHERINE GRAHAM, THEATRE RE

"Billy, a loser and a hack embroiled in a post-literary dystopia, ultimately finds meaning in a sea of letters. Literature® is a dark and deft commentary on a world rumbling towards illiteracy."
CHRISTOPHER ALLEN,
OTHER HOUSEHOLD TOXINS, MATTER PRESS

“I was enraptured from the start. A beautifully balanced piece of writing. I love his style.”
SIÚN O'CONNOR,
A RICH INHERITANCE, RTE

"A futuristic look into a land where book-burning ceremonies are embraced and those who rebel are punished. Protagonist Billy Stringer is both vulnerably lovable and irritatingly suffocating all at once in his mission to save his future. Brave New World meets 1984 in this Big Brother masterpiece."
KRISTI ELIZABETH,
SAN FRANCISCO BOOK REVIEW

"A fascinating book. A neon neo-noir where people are fuelled on a diet of eggs and coffee and nobody sleeps. A sustained howl of outrage at our dumbed-down society.
This is satire in the grand tradition: Fahrenheit 451 but with better jokes."
JOHN PATRICK HIGGINS,
EVERY DAY I WAKE UP HOPEFUL
