Cover of Gleam


The gargantuan Factory of Gleam is an ancient, hulking edifice of stone, metal and glass ruled over by chaste alchemists and astronomer priests. As millennia have passed, the population has decreased, and now only the central district is fully inhabited and operational; the outskirts have been left for the wilderness to reclaim. This decaying, lawless zone is the Discard; the home of Wild Alan.

“Gleam’s combination of dystopia, mythic quest, music and squishy monsters is hugely entertaining. Fletcher’s distinctive prose – alternating barogue description and brutal action – is spiced with witty dialogue and eccentric characters” – SFX

Manchester Event Postponed

Due to the original venue having to undergo some renovations, I’ve postponed the Manchester reading of GLEAM. I’m currently arranging a date with another (new, not yet opened bookshop), and will of course update this site with the details as and when they’re confirmed. Apologies for any inconvenience.
