Quiet Town

Quiet Town Cover

Attracted by the mysterious promise of redemption and catharsis, Quiet Town is visited only by the desperate, the weak, the damaged, and the insane. Such visitors do not leave. The few lucky enough to find the closure that they seek, the few that manage to fight their way to that pot of gold and the end of a bleak, grey, rainbow, ascend silently into the night sky. Most, instead, are struck down in their quest, rot into the ground, and become a part of the throbbing ebb of Quiet Towns geoconsciousness.

Lest a Monster You Become

Lest a Monster you become - Cover

Beware he who fights monsters,
lest a monster you become.
As you stare into the abyss,
the abyss stares back at you.

- Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good & Evil

Lest a Monster you Become is Ben A Albon's debut novel: a grotesque coming of age story that blends romance, horror and surrealism. It draws on existential and Jungian themes common to Otaku culture and blends them with a black humour and bleak realism that is quintessentially British, to create a world that is neither here nor there.
