Out from Angry Robot on October 29th, Sixty-One Nails is first of a splendid urban fantasy series that reveals a fantastical side to present-day Britain. But beyond all of the revelations of ancient races that dwell just beyond the corners of our daily lives, the book is also something of a travelogue through the very real secret history of our island.
In this first volume, much of the action takes places in the forgotten corners of London. So in a series of blog posts starting today and running right up to Sixty-One Nails’ release, author Mike Shevdon will explore in more detail many of those places. In the first, he looks at Strand Station, and finds that despite disappearing from the maps many years ago, traces remain of the abandoned underground stop. Check it out.
