Next week is author Philip A. Oldfield week in outsideleft. Critically acclaimed for his novels and short stories, Phil enters the pantheon... We've done this a few times before, these 'It's Blah Blah Week in Outsideleft Week, Weeks...' Mainly, for otherwise unheralded writers we admire. We've had weeks with Kirk Lake, Andy Conway and Mark Piggott, I think, I mean, there may be others but then I'd have to have time to check through the archive. And maybe others, like Jonathan Ames, we should have featured all week and never did. Still.
Philip A. Oldfield is based in Exeter, Devon, his stories contain vocab to die for, his characters to love or to loathe in equal measure and he's seemingly able with alacrity, if alacrity entails an age of painstaking research and meticulous planning, to turn his hand to any manner of page turning fiction. Phil has produced time spanning psychological thrillers, roman de gare romances, dystopian short stories and way more and all with equal aplomb
Phil's critically acclaimed first novel Blood Relationships has just been reissued with reimagined cover art. It's been described by a reviewer as "a page-turning thriller bordering on horror, which marries Nazi eugenics and a cunning plan by Hitler to ensure a Fourth Reich emerges today..." If that doesn't give too much away.
Next week Phil will be in outsideleft all the time. We have a massive several-day spanning interview; and Phil has provided an excerpt from Blood Relationships for us to all enjoy. We couldn't be more thrilled.
Meanwhile check out Phil's on Amazon and his website, download his books to your Kindle and get a headstart on your homework...
