Spirits of Place out now

Cover by Pye Parr

“What’s next for Spirits of Place?” is a question that was asked a lot after the event of the same name took place back in April. Now, at last, that question can be answered. Next comes Spirits of Place the book (formerly AKA #projectLOCI).

Published by Daily Grail Publishing, Spirits of Place is available NOW in various formats:

Stories are embedded in the world around us; in metal, in brick, in concrete, and in wood. In the very earth beneath our feet. Our history surrounds us and the tales we tell, true or otherwise, are always rooted in what has gone before. The spirits of place are the echoes of people, of events, of ideas which have become imprinted upon a location, for better or for worse. They are the genii loci of classical Roman religion, the disquieting atmosphere of a former battlefield, the comfort and familiarity of a childhood home.

Twelve authors take us on a journey; a tour of places where they themselves have encountered, and consulted with, these Spirits of Place.

Those twelve authors are:

Bryndís BjörgvinsdóttirVajra ChandrasekeraMaria J. Pérez CuervoWarren EllisAlan MooreSilvia Moreno-GarciaKristine Ong MuslimDr. Joanne Parker Mark PesceIain SinclairGazelle Amber ValentineDamien Williams.

The book is edited, curated, and introduced by me, John Reppion.

#projectLOCI – coming very soon

#projectLOCI is something myself and Greg Taylor at Daily Grail have been working on for seven months now.

It’s a collection of writings by twelve incredible authors: Bryndís BjörgvinsdóttirVajra ChandrasekeraMaria J. Pérez CuervoWarren EllisAlan MooreSilvia Moreno-GarciaKristine Ong MuslimDr. Joanne Parker Mark PesceIain SinclairGazelle Amber ValentineDamien Williams.

It’s edited, curated, and introduced by me.

It’s a book about place and our relationship to it; how ideas and stories and events become embedded into locations. And how people interact with those places; how they change the way we look at and think about ourselves and others.

Pye Parr has done us an amazing cover, which you can see a fraction of above. More of that, and the book’s actual title, will be revealed in the next fortnight or so when it goes on sale.

Keep an eye out here, and on dailygrail.com, and prepare to get very excited.
