Like the hand of the Devil, the minute hand casts its ominous shadow as the Doomsday Clock ticks closer to midnight. And as millions face annihilation at the hands of a madman, on the other side of the mirror, the great and the good have been granted a stage of their own: Alfred Hitchcock plays the wolf and Marilyn Monroe plays the sex kitten. And Pablo Picasso paints his greatest masterwork since Guernica whilst proclaiming his genius. While, in the demon forest, the still heart of Richard Wagner begins to beat once more. Welcome to the strange, hallucinatory fever dream that is the Clockwork Mirror - one of the broken places where the silver glass of cosmic time is cracked wide and the titanic engines of creation are revealed, each tumbling mirror shard reflecting a vision from the edge of the inferno. Here are worlds populated by bold heroes and lethal sirens - alternate realities home to malevolent doctors and ruthless assassins, where deadly trials must be faced and darkest truths are revealed just before the killing blow is delivered. . .
Richard Snow was born in Birmingham in 1970. An artist and writer of poetry, The Clockwork Mirror is his first collection of short stories.
