Beyond Each Blue Horizon

by Andrew Hook
Release date: 2005
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, short stories

Beyond Each Blue Horizon is a wonderfully rich collection of stories by British Fantasy Award nominee, Andrew Hook. Equally at home with writing speculative or straight fiction, Andrew refuses to be stymied or compartmentalised by marketplace considerations, believing that to write the story as it comes is a much more honest way to write. His honesty of style shines through in this fabulous collection of stories.

Graham Joyce was kind enough to write the following: "This collection of disturbing vignettes and cleverly fractured narratives is full of exciting language and seductive philosophical insight. Andrew Hook is a wonderfully original writer.

Here are some sample reviews:

"In Beyond Each Blue Horizon, Hook proves himself a master of slipstream. His stories range from the darkly apocalyptic to the hopefully visionary, some brilliant and none less than satisfactory." - Dru Pagliassotti, The Harrow

"An honest, intense, immensely readable feast of good writing and startlingly original ideas and vivid characterisations that will stay with the reader for a long time after the book is closed. I tried to read it slowly, I couldn't. It pulled me in, intrigued me and wouldn't let go until I reached the last page." - Terry Gates-Grimwood, Whispers of Wickedness

"The best way to read it is to treat yourself to at most one story a day, with other reading in between to resensitise your imagination for the broiling Hook is going to give you afresh each time." - Djibril, The Future Fire
