The Peacock Cloak

(2013)
A collection of stories by

 
In 2009, Chris Beckett's first short story collection The Turing Test won the prestigious Edge Hill Prize, becoming the first, and to date the only, genre collection ever to manage this. In doing so, the book triumphed over a very strong shortlist, including collections by one Booker Prize winner in Anne Enright and two authors who have been Booker shortlisted in Shena Mackay and Ali Smith (the latter a winner of the Whitbread Prize).

When announcing the winner, one of the judges - James Walton, journalist and chair of BBC Radio 4's The Write Stuff - said, "I suspect Chris Beckett winning the Edge Hill Prize will be seen as a surprise in the world of books. In fact, though, it was also a bit of surprise to the judges, none of whom knew they were science fiction fans beforehand."

In 2012 the Sunday Times named Chris' latest novel Dark Eden the best science fiction novel of the year, and it is currently shortlisted for the BSFA Award in the same category. NewCon Press are delighted to be publishing The Peacock Cloak, the latest collection from one of Britain's most distinguished and accomplished genre authors. Contains twelve stories (85,000 words) all previously uncollected.
