The Wilderness
Samantha HARVEY (United Kingdom)
J. Cape
- ANG R HAR
It’s Jake’s birthday. He is sitting in a small plane, being flown over the landscape that has been the backdrop to his life - his childhood, his marriage, his work, his passions. Now he is in his early sixties, and he isn’t quite the man he used to be. He has lost his wife, his son is in prison, and he is about to lose his past. Jake has Alzheimer’s. As the disease takes hold of him, Jake struggles to hold on to his personal story, to his memories and identity, but they become increasingly elusive and unreliable. As Jake fights the inevitable dying of the light, the key events of his life keep changing as he tries to grasp them, and what until recently seemed solid fact is melting into surreal dreams or nightmarish imaginings.

Memoirs of a Master forger
William HEANEY (United Kingdom)
Orion
- ANR SF HEA
William is a dissolute book-forger. A talented writer in his own right he would rather scribble poems anonymously for an Asian friend, and create forgeries of Jane Austen first editions to sell to gullible collectors. He’s not all bad. The money from the forgeries goes straight to homeless hostel and William’s crimes don’t really hurt anyone. And there are reasons William hasn’t amounted to more. He did something he was ashamed of when he was a student, he drinks far too much and he can’t commit to any relationships. Oh and he sees demons...

A divorced mother in Florida reflects on the life that is slipping away from her. A young zoologist sees the world from the business end of his zebras. A writer, marooned in a watery dystopia and charged with entertaining an unruly mob, pays the consequences for his (in)sensitive choice of material. And Pythagoras explains just what exactly was his problem with triangles.
