Saving Shadows

by Eugen Bacon
We are proud to present Saving Shadows, a volume of exquisite prose poetry and speculative micro-lit pieces by internationally renowned author Eugen Bacon. Forty-eight compositions in all: contemporary visions, twenty-six of which are previously published and twenty-two are originals written specially for this book.

Complementing the written word are a series of full page illustrations commissioned by the author from artist Elena Betti; thirty-five stunning images that enhance the reading experience.

“Saving Shadows is a lightning sizzle of pure poetic energy. Through the prism of sharp speculative fiction, the darkest hues of our world are revealed, reflected, refracted into a myriad of brilliant shards. Each piece dazzles, cutting quick and deep. Absolutely unforgettable.” – Lisa L. Hannett, award-winning author of Songs for Dark Seasons

“Such energy, boldness, and unexpected leaps and turns; whether going at a cracking pace or pausing reflectively, the fiction in this quirky work is vibrant and engaging. As a multi-media work, it is page-turning and confronting. Powerful stuff.” – Dominique Hecq, award-winning poet, novelist, short story writer


We regret to announce that the wonderful hardback of this one is going to be delayed until early 2022. The signing sheets, which need to be completed by Eugen (Australia) and Elena (Italy), were sent via courier at the start of November, in hope of beating the usual seasonal log-jam. Unfortunately, things have not gone to plan. 

*** Update: Good News At Last:

After a series of misfortunes, the latest of which saw the Italian courier company lose the barcode shipping authorisation and return the parcel to Elena in Italy a week after they collected it, the sheets have finally arrive back in the UK. The hardback edition is now IN PRODUCTION!!

We can only apologise once again for the delay and thank you for the patience in these exceptional circumstances. We will fulfill orders as soon as it's possible to do so, and can promise you that the book is worth the wait.

The hardback edition of the book (signed by both the author and illustrator) has been printed on high quality silk-finish paper to ensure the interior artwork is displayed to its best advantage.

Available as an A5 paperback, Kindle, and a numbered special edition hardback limited to just 70 signed copies.
