9780957627109: Red Phone Box

Shatter a mirror, and rearrange the pieces. What shapes will you find in the splintered glass? Sinister forces roam London's streets, skulking through the neon-lit rain. They are not alone. Haunted by memories of the man who abandoned her, Amber goes walking in the deep night. The phone box she enters takes her on a journey she could never have imagined, one in which the past and the future will be rewritten. Others follow in her footsteps, their lives intertwining, and the fate of the world hanging on their dance. Safran, pawn of unfathomable powers. Jon, who has lived and died and lived again. Gloria, who only intended to annoy her daddy. Cory, from a different world, on a desperate quest for allies. They and others will find themselves swept up as the playthings of gods who have managed to get along peacefully for millennia - until now. Red Phone Box is a darkly magical story cycle, a network of interweaving tales by a dazzling range of masterful authors, including Gun Machine's Warren Ellis. Let them take you to a very different London - one that hides on the other side of the fractured glass.

About the Author:

Salomé Jones has an MFA in creative writing from Pacific University, Oregon, and an MA in writing from Roehampton University in London, UK. She loves the mixture of highbrow and lowbrow fiction, and almost quit her MFA program when she was advised that genre-writing was a waste of her talent. 'Genre writing _is_ my talent,' says Jones. She's currently working on her own novel, also a mix of literary and fantasy. She lives in London with her partner and a dire lack of cats, hopefully soon to be remedied.

Review:

'A genre-bending collection of horror-fantasy short stories set in London, centering on a red phone booth, gateway to the netherworld. Suffering from insomnia due to her recently ended love affair, Amber sets off on a midnight stroll through London, imagining that her entire body is glowing. She returns to her apartment to find a new boyfriend who can't comprehend why she doesn't know him. What initially seems to be a loosely connected assortment of short stories is actually a short story cycle or composite novel. As the anthology progresses, characters and plot lines interweave. The introduction of the Anglesey Deer, an amulet carved out of one of the trees from the Roman massacre of Druids in Anglesey in A.D. 60, creates another unifying story line. American professor Kelly David travels to England at the behest of Horace Vandenbussche, thinking her tenure will be guaranteed once she obtains this priceless artifact. Instead, she witnesses first his shape-shifting and then his murder. Her quest for the amulet may lead to her own demise, as well as that of several other characters. Particularly heartrending are Francesca Burgon's stories (Phone Boxes Taste Bad and When the Phone Rings), featuring young Margaret and her perhaps mentally ill, perhaps extremely focused mother, who totes around bags of evidence and makes phone calls to share her findings. The compelling Gloria Vandenbussche, despite her despair at being her father's gofer, is transcendent in the stories in which she appears, particularly Tamsyn Kennedy's A Brief Transaction, which neatly blends urban fantasy with chick lit. Occasionally disjointed due to the abundance of plotlines, characters and settings, the collection comprises 58 short stories by 29 different authors. Nonetheless, the anthology's style works overall, a testament to skillful editing. A few of the story lines remain unresolved, leaving the door open for the promised Book Two. The quintessentially cheerful symbol of England, the red phone box, doesn't hint at the dark materials contained here. This mix of horror, noir and urban fantasy plays with the boundaries of literary genre fiction.' --Kirkus Reviews

'Red Phone Box is a monster made of words by 28 Dr. Frankensteins. It's a book, a story cycle, and a fever dream where time and space, and human and inhuman lives collide in beautiful madness.' --Richard Kadrey, author of the Sandman Slim series

'Dark and surreal, the interconnected stories of Red Phone Box will invade your dreams with their twisted charms and make you wish for more.' --Stephen Blackmoore, author of Dead Things
