Book Launch: Rebecca Lloyd - The View From Endless Street and Mercy

Friday 4th July 2014 6pm - 7:30pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

Rebecca Lloyd writes short stories and novels, and this July is celebrating the simultaneous release of two new short story collections.

The View from Endless Street (Wido Publishing) explores relationships and the brave or foolish things they can make people do. Stories about murder and ghosts, delusion and desperation, obsession and arson, show readers a sometimes sweet, sometimes macabre vision of humanity. Rebecca Lloyd channels Roald Dahl's wit and flair for the unexpected in this collection that will appeal to the quirky side of the literary reader.

Mercy (Tartarus Press), a collection of sixteen strange stories, nine of which are previously unpublished, is made up of tales of unease with a sprinkling of the ghostly, menacing and fantastical. The stories inhabit the fragile space between fantasy and reality, where the landscape is in constant flux and things are not quite as they seem.

Rebeca Lloyd's stories are dark and strange and many of them have been published in literary magazines and anthologies. She won the Bristol Prize 2008 for her story 'The River' and her short story collection Don't Drink the Water was a semi-finalist in the Hudson Prize 2010, while her novel Under the Exquisite Gaze was shortlisted in the Dundee International Book Prize. Her collection Whelp and Other Stories was a finalist in the Paul Bowles Short Fiction Award 2014.
