The Elements of Time by Duncan Lunan – Book Launch


The Elements of Time, a collection of time-travel stories by Troon author Duncan Lunan, will be published in paperback and PDF by the new Scottish SF magazine Shoreline of Infinity, on Wednesday, 7th September 2016. The four classical elements are represented in the collection's main stories, featuring time travel by land, sea, air and fire, supported by three shorter stories also involving time travel. Three of the main stories were first published in the USA, in Analog, Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine and the anthology series There Will Be War, and all three were nominated for the Science Fiction Writers of America Nebula Award. The fourth was to be published in Amazing Stories, when the magazine ceased publication, and the others appeared in the UK, in Dream, West Coast Magazine, and the Centre for Contemporary Arts collection To Arrive at Where We Started.


The book is illustrated throughout by Sydney Jordan from Dundee, best known as the creator of Jeff Hawke, the world's longest running science fiction comic strip (from 1954 to 1988; Duncan Lunan wrote or contributed to ten of the later stories). The 'air' story With Time Comes Concord was illustrated by Sydney for its first publication in Analog, and he has now provided illustrations for all the other six stories as well as a colour cover.


The book will be launched on Wednesday, 7th September at 7 p.m. in the RSAS Barassie Works Club, 4 Shore Road, Troon, Ayrshire KA10 6AG, with music and readings, as part of Shoreline of Infinity's highly successful series of 'Event Horizon' performance events.


Admission is free and all are welcome!
