A collection of stories by

An amateur goalkeeper is frozen solid in a moment of ecstasy as he makes his perfect save. A young man finds himself drawn into the autoerotic asphyxiation fantasies of his deceased uncle. A photographer navigates the rapids of London's fashion-media elite and struggles to remain afloat in a sea of drugs. These stories feature a parade of mad women, male neurotics, lovesick morticians, frustrated pizza waiters, and psychotic serial killers. Nicholas Royle's tales are skewed vignettes of the way we live now.
