This is Horror Black Feathers launch posterApril 4th is the official publication date of Joseph D’Lacey‘s brand new post-eco-apocalyptic dark fantasy Black Feathers and Joseph is marking the occasion with two launch events in the week leading up to publication.

The first of these is the Edinburgh Launch, in association with This is Horror and Blackwells Edinburgh South Bridge on Saturday 30th March. The event, which runs from 3.00 – 5.00 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, is a triple horror author show with Joseph’s fellow Angry Roboteer Gary McMahon, plus zombie godfather David Moody, hosted by Jasper Bark.

We’re reliably informed that all seated tickets for the event have been sold already, but more have been made available if you don’t mind standing up for the duration. Please e-mail with the subject line ‘This Is Horror Event’ or call 0131 622 8218 for your free ticket.

If you can’t make it up to Scotland, then perhaps the London Launch at the Big Green Bookshop in Wood Green, London, on Friday 5th April would be the one to aim for.

The event will run from 6.30 to 9.00 p.m. on a feel-free-to-drop-in-and-say-hello basis (but make sure you drop in at 6.30 or you’ll miss Joseph’s reading from Black Feathers) with snacks and drinks provided. All very civilised, we’re sure you’ll agree.

Send an email to or call them on 020 8881 6767 if you need more information about the London launch.
