Here at Nothing in the Rulebook, we often find affinity with Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith, on that we love it when a plan comes together – especially when that plan involves fascinating new ideas and copious amounts of creativity.
Josh Spiller’s debut novel, The 8th Emotion, is heavy on both new ideas and creativity. We originally told you about the plan for this project when it launched on Kickstarter in 2018. So it’s rather brilliant to now let you all know about the official launch of Spiller’s searing new novel.
Described by legendary writer Alan Moore as marking “the emergence of a fascinating fresh voice” and “Not so much fantasy as post-science science fiction”, The 8th Emotion promises to be everything you’d want from a book to read in 2019.
So, we’d strongly encourage all of you to make it over to the launch of the book on 1st February in London, where you’ll be able to meet the author and hear Spiller reading an an extract of his novel, meet fellow creative artists, writers and book lovers, and enjoy a selection of food and drink. The event details are here below:
Date: 1st February 2019
Time: 18.30 – 20.00
Venue: South Kensington Books (22 Thurloe Street, Kensington, London, SW7 2LT
In case you can’t wait that long, you can have a sneak peak inside the book and read a pre-released chapter right here on NITRB.
And you can also read an interview with Spiller about his book, writing, literature and everything else in between.
