Join Sam Stone and Rhys Hughes!

at our London Megastore

Sam Stone and Rhys Hughes will be signing their new books at the Forbidden Planet London Meagstore on Saturday 27th September at 1:00pm.

A tale of vampires, gargoyles, faith and farce from the author of Zombies at Tiffany’s and Kat on a Hot Tin Airship.

Nothing ever seems to go Kat Lightfoot’s way. If she’s not in the middle of battling a plague of gargoyle-like monsters in 1865 New York, she’s falling head over heels in love with her friend George Pepper … which wouldn’t be so bad, except that every other female is doing the same.

When Kat is caught in a passionate cinch with Pepper, a wedding is afoot, but no-one expected a gaggle of vampire women to be staying at the Chateau Chantel at the same time … nor for them to take such an interest in poor Pepper themselves.

Kat has her work cut out …

Sam Stone is the award winning author of several horror/fantasy novels, many short stories and three novellas. She is Commissioning Editor for Telos Publishing’s new imprint Telos Moonrise.

So you want to know about the Faraway Brothers, do you?

Born somewhere in Gascony, they were, in the 1880s, all three of them birthed at the same time from the same womb of the same mother.

Grew up in the same household, they did too, eating the same food, reading the same books, counting the legs on the same spider because the family couldn’t afford a real clock; but later they went their separate ways.

Scipio took to the sea, to ships, islands and women; Distanto took to the air, to balloons, islands and women; Neary, unluckiest of the triplets, remained on land, taking only to locomotives and stations and chastity.

Many adventures they all had and often their paths crossed and sometimes they clashed and the consequences were always totally STUPENDOUS!

Rhys Hughes began writing from an early age. His first short story was published in 1991 and his first book followed four years later. His main ambition is to complete a grand sequence of exactly one thousand linked short stories, a project he has been working on for more than two decades. Captains Stupendous is his attempt to write in a genre called 'Steamprog' that he has invented just now.
