Secret Language

by Neil Williamson
Secret Language is Neil Williamson’s first collection in ten years, but it has been worth the wait. A regular contributor to magazines such as Interzone and Black Static, Williamson’s short fiction has gained plaudits from critics and readers alike. In 2014, his debut novel The Moon King appeared to great acclaim. It was runner up or the BSFA Award for best novel and shortlisted for the Holdstock Award.

Secret Language gathers together sixteen stories, four of them written especially for this volume, that demonstrate why Neil Williamson is one of genre fiction’s finest writers. The BSFA shortlisted story “Arrhythmia” provides just one of the highlights in this exceptional collection.   

“Williamson’s territories are the liminal experience and the murky corners of the psyche. He is a virtuoso of the fleeting glimpse, a laureate of loss.” – Interzone

“Williamson nails style and structure to tell of high school hackers heisting music on the streets to create their own mixes.” – Speculation (of ‘Pearl in the Shell’)

“A talented writer who transcends genre, and should be bought, read and cherished.” – Shaun Green, Yet Another Book Review

“Williamson is one of the best Scottish short story writers alive today.” – Jim Steel
