Red Phone BoxAbout Red Phone Box: A Darkly Magical Story Cycle

Paperback: 368 pages

Publisher: Ghostwoods Books (November 30, 2013)

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 Goodman 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.

Praise for Red Phone Box:

Richard Kadrey, NYT best-selling author of the Sandman Slim series: “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.”

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

Sean Cregan, author of The Razor Gate: “… the cleverly chained tales keep a narrative thread running … and it’s a joy, and often a horror, to go along for the ride. Brilliant stuff.”

Greg Stolze, author of SwitchFlipped and Sinner: “…a postmodern literary Dagwood sammitch, spiced with murder addicts, druids, vampires and Warren Ellis (as an author, not a character).”

Salomé Jones has an MFA in creative writing from Pacific University, Oregon, and an M.A. 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.
