Theatre of Curious Acts

Theatre of Curious Acts (forthcoming later this year from Hadley Rille Books) now has a cover by the incredibly talented Simone Held...


Nineteen-year-old Daniel Cole returns home from the Great War wanting the world to end. His brother and parents are in their graves. Nothing is the same. 

During a performance at the Theatre of Curious Acts, Daniel and his friends, fellow soldiers, are lured into a surreal otherworld. Travelling through this strange land they happen upon the four horsewomen of the apocalypse, dragons, the steam trains of the Anabiosis Station with their ghostly passengers, ancient warriors and a pirate ship waiting to ferry them to the end of the world. Already broken by man's war, these boys are now the world's only hope in the greatest battle of all.

That looks great - very moody. (As in atmospheric, not stroppy...)
