Two novels mentioned in The Secret App

My novels The Beasts of Electra Drive and The Imagination Thief (and one of my main writing locations) are mentioned in a beautifully-produced new app that I’m pleased to be a small part of—“The Secret App”, which reveals “secret” places in big cities. As one of the app’s 57 Londoners, I present six off-the-beaten-track locations in London that I enjoy and/or make use of, which deserve to be better known …

Rohan Quine's titles at Spotify

All the audiobooks are now on Spotify

Spotify in the UK has today started offering audiobooks, including my titles. (Spotify in the U.S. began offering them earlier this year.) Narrated by me, they’re all literary fiction with a touch of magical realism and a dusting of horror, to expand and electrify—celebrating the beauty, darkness and mirth of this predicament called life, where we seem to have been dropped without sufficient consultation ahead of time. The Beasts of …

Rohan Quine's 'TBED' as Winner in 2021 NYCBB Award - 3

The six titles all receive accolades from the NYC Big Book Award

Glad to see my six published titles have all received accolades from the NYC Big Book Award 2021. Although it’s not restricted to the U.S., the award’s inclusion of the letters “NYC” in its name feels like an apt bit of geography, because I was a New Yorker for a decade, and NYC was where four of the six titles were partly written and three of them were started. First, …

Photos from the recording of The Imagination Thief’s video-book format

It was fun to return to the fuzzy-booth lifestyle, to record the video-book format of The Imagination Thief, whose audio track provided the novel’s recently-published first audiobook edition. The video-camera only looked in one direction, to create the video-book that lives at www.rohanquine.com/t-i-t-video-book and the short-‘n’-snackable teasers from it (some less than a minute long), which live at www.rohanquine.com/t-i-t-video-book/short-teasers-for-the-imagination-thief-video-book But the following photos bring back memories of what was off-video-camera, …

2013 novel The Imagination Thief is gratefully chuffed to be included in a “best of the decade” list of six titles chosen by Dan Holloway

My 2013 novel The Imagination Thief is gratefully chuffed to be included in a “best of the decade” list of six titles chosen by Dan Holloway: https://twitter.com/agnieszkasshoes/status/1210678118421323776 Part of the chuffingness results from the fact that Dan is alarmingly well-read in a grand array of literary genres and academic fields—his three Gold medals as Creative Thinking World Champion in the Mind Sports Olympiad in each of & & , as …
