some time we are heroes

My forthcoming collection with the excellent The Corrupt Press. Thanks to Jan Stead for the brilliant cover image, the the editor, Dylan Harris, and to George Szirtes, Helen Ivory and Jerome Rothenberg for their endorsements.

The very white, very middle-class, very English children of the Ladybird Early Readers books have grown up. They are no longer so white, so middle-class or so English, and they are now called John and Mary. We follow their (mis)adventures in this dystopia and its myths, both ancient and modern.
