From the Waste Land

So excited to share news of ‘From the Waste Land’, an upcoming anthology from PS Publishing!

What is it?

A collection of spec stories inspired by TS Eliot’s transformative poem The Waste Land.

Gorgeous cover work from Cat Sparks!

What is ‘The Waste Land’?

The poem The Waste Land was a game changer, dealing with the cultural disillusionment that occurred after the first world war. I’m no poetry analysis expert, but to me, Eliot’s poem has a liminal feel. Things are changing, from the old ways of doing things to the new, and within that void, people must determine how to live.

From the Waste Land’ gathers spec stories set in the past, in other worlds, in the future, all inspired by this poem.
