"Nothing lasts forever. Everything is ephemeral. Time slips by, people change, happiness is fleeting. Neil Williamson's collection of bittersweet tales features fourteen stories of impermanence: from the ends of love affairs and the brief sanity of wartime convalescence, to the fading away of old languages and the dying of humanity itself."
Hat's off to Andrew Hook, whose Elastic Press is going from strength to strength. Last year, Elastic Press wrested the coveted British Fantasy Society Best Small award from the four-wins-in-a-row iron grip of Peter Crowther's PS Publishing. A fantastic feat and one possible entirely due to Hook's ambition, dedication and good taste. Elastic's latest release The Ephemera is a collection of stories by the hugely talented Scottish writer Neil Williamson and embodies their mission of high quality writing and high quality production values.
"Emotionally complex and displaying a keen eye for detail, the stories in Neil Williamson's collection The Ephemera are a rich and rewarding read from a stylish new Scottish talent." -- Jeff Vandermeer.
