Extract / Preview – Earwig by Brian Catling

Mr Brian Catling (sculptor, poet, novelist, film maker and performance artist) has been on our radar since the beginning of his literary fantasy the Vorrh Trilogy and the appreciation it received from the likes of Alan Moore. September sees the publication of his latest, a standalone novel Earwig of which publisher Coronet notes: “Not since Edgar Allan Poe and the Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita has there been such a masterly tale of feline evil.”

It’s a smart comparison as anyone who’s read The Master and Margarita won’t be able to help having a deeper look, and more than apt given there’s more than a little of that smart weirdness in Catling’s work as you can read in our extract – kindly provided by Coronet – below…
