Through dreamscape wonderment, fetishism, guilt, loss and love, these twenty-one stories map both physical and internal environments. Hook's familiar themes of identity, memory, and the nature of reality thread multiple genres to form a dense cartographic exploration of the human condition.
Andrew was born in 1967 in Norwich and began writing in 1987, with the assistance of the Government's Enterprise Allowance Scheme. After a period of travelling he continued writing in his spare time and his first published story was "Pussycat" in 1994. Since then he has had over 90 separate short story sales, one novel and two novellas published, and four short story collections. These were in a variety of genres, although slipstream is his default style.
