Richard Blandford’s long awaited short-story collection, The Shuffle, is published today by The Big Hand.
It’s a story collection unlike any other because it takes advantage of things that the Kindle isn’t supposed to do in order to deliver stories in a random order and trap you inside its neverending pages.
Not bad for £2.04, huh?
We’ll have some reviews for you soon, and as it’s the best thing Richard Blandford has ever written (his words) we’re expecting a lot of love for this ebook. Until then, though, here is the blurb:
Inside the Shuffle the Devil lives in the roofs of terraced houses, the art world finds Picasso’s lost colouring book and a contagious virus causes everyone to talk with the voice of Tom Baker. Inside the Shuffle there’s a Facebook-style afterlife, the hardest jigsaw in the world and the disappointing return of Christ. Inside the Shuffle sex and death, food and love, art and life are jumbled and reimagined. There is no way out of the Shuffle.
The Shuffle is a short-story collection that gives a different experience to every reader. It’s an ebook with a ‘shuffle’ feature, meaning that the stories it contains can be served to you in a seemingly random order. It also includes three hidden stories which the reader is highly unlikely to find. It’s a unique presentation of a unique story collection which takes the reader deep into the heart of the Shuffle – and traps them there.
The Shuffle by Richard Blandford is available now on Kindle at the foolish price of £2.04.
