Event Description

A satirical extravaganza about China, Britain, imperialism and drugs in the 19th century in poetry & music. See narco-capitalists & Chinese lawmakers slug it out in verse, take part in a poetry slam, and watch the weirdest tea ceremony ever.

With music from legendary writer Charles Shaar Murray; former Flying Lizards singer Deborah Evans-Stickland performing her mega-hit "Money"; DJ Zoe "Lucky Cat" Baxter; and Gary Lammin of The Bermondsey Joyriders in the weirdest tea ceremony you've ever seen.

Have your photograph taken in your finest steampunk paraphernalia on stage by Mrs Sukey Parnell, who has exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery, and maybe see it displayed on the interweb.

Written and hosted by cultural provocateur Anna Chen.

"Vile fate, and cruel!  Have you considered self-publishing on one of the services like CreateSpace?  Best of luck with whatever choice you make.  I hope it works out for you in the end."

So, last year my novella collection Zeppelins are What Dreams are Made of: A Pulp Adventure in Three Parts was set for publication by Eggplant Literary Productions. I signed the contract, mailed it in, and the press promptly shut down before the book ever came out.After much deliberation (not really), I'm releasing it in thrice-weekly installments. You can follow the adventures of dimension-hopping assassin Jennifer Asten here:…See More
