Retro-tainment, existential eavesdropping, or the future of self-help?

After an unspecified disaster, the future is quiet and analogue. Behind a doorway in the old town, a private library service flourishes. Signed up by the inscrutable Charlie, patrons subscribe to a membership they don’t fully understand. Whether heartbreak, a rainstorm, or habitual brittleness leads you to The Memory Library, your contributions can be accommodated.

With illustrations by Richard Holt.


Paperback, 103 pages, $24.99 + postage

Praise

‘An ageless, fable-like work of glinting unfamiliarity and mystery. The Memory Library is a glass-like novella humming with internal significance.’

Jessica Au, Cold Enough For Snow

‘A dissociative, contrapuntal sci-fi that’s also a paean to human connection. A novella by turns grounding and soaring that drew me back, after the final page, like a rich and changing memory.’

Briohny Doyle, Why We Are Here
