Black Country by Joel Lane

As chapbooks are so short (typically 8 - 18 pages), to give a storyline would spoil the thrill of this spine-tingling tale!

Peer & Press Reviews

Narrated by a police officer… Black Country is a story built on shifting sands, as the actual investigation recedes into the background somewhat, and the focus is more on the narrator’s emotional state.

David Hebblethwaite, Follow the Thread

Joel Lane writes about how the past is constructed by the future, how our self-debilitated environment echoes the things we have forgotten about; how this is both an individual and a social process.  Uneasy, passionate, never bitter.

M John Harrison
