Egaeus Press and the marvellously unique Charles Wilkinson join forces once more for The Harmony of the Stares: Ten diversely strange tales, steeped in menace, linked in the most unexpected ways by an auricular theme... These are tales in which music often plays a role: music as ritual, music as language, impossible music, lethal music. But here also are the silences, the stop-gaps between notes, the attempted retreats from the audible world.
The table of contents is as follows:
The True Accompanist
The Missing Part
A Gift from the Borders
The Festival of Conformity
The Harmony of the Stares
The Different Chapters
Walking in from the West
Music in the Age of Sheep
