about

Allen Ashley's tales of Urban Fantasy areintensely surreal, savagely satirical, subtlysubversive and despairingly funny. Possessedof a unique vision and a distinctive prosestyle, Allen Ashley exposes the absurdities ofmodern British society like no other writer.Every waking moment is a struggle forcontinued sanity and survival as we muddlethoughtlessly through this surrealist jokecalled civilisation. The challenges - factual,fictitious, mythical, eminently plausible -just keep on coming. Ashley demonstratesthat, if you have the nose for it, apocalypsecan be smelled everywhere - in the latestmedia circus; in the latest dubious laws orgovernment measures; in celebrity cultureor the surveillance state; in the mindsets andprejudices of the population and in the tiniestactions we all perform.
