Thirteen Shadows Waiting for Sunrise is the second anthology from Year Zero Writers, following on from Brief Objects of Beauty and Despair. The collection, loosely themed around the question, “can we write a reader’s pain?” will featurte the very best work from this website, and will be available as a free download from smashwords, and as a fully-functioning widget from bookbuzzr on December 18th.

Thirteen Shadows will be the centrepiece of a series of Year Zero words & music events in 2010, including a big bash at Rough Trade Records in Brick Lane on February 4th, featuring singer-songwriter Jessie Grace, and bands InLight and To The Moon. Start spreading the word! Literary fiction is alive and screaming, and Thirteen Shadows is about to give it not so much a shot as the full H-bomb in the arm.

Contributing Year Zero Writers: Penny Goring, Daisy Anne Gree, Anne Lyken-Garner, Marc Nash, Larry Harrison, Marcella O’Connor, Oli Johns, Jenn Topper, Sarah E Melville, Dan Holloway, Heikki Hietala, Simon Betterton

  9. This anthology is going to prove how much we rock a thousand times over. 2010, here we come!

    I second the ‘States’ tour idea.

  10. Sarah, the Facebook page for the event, and Authonomy all seem to suggest a Stateside tour is in order. I think we may all be crashing at yours, Jenn!

  11. I’ve been told we’re wanted in Santa Fe.

  12. Portland, Oregon requires a tour visit as well. I know just the venue for it as well…
