CLIP: The Gumshoe by Paul D. Brazill

In the beginning was the sound. The light came later.                The sound was a horrifying wail that skewered its way deep into my unconscious brain until I awoke sharply – drowning in sweat, my heart smashing through my ribcage, my head about to burst.                Some twat, somewhere, was playing a U2 song over…

I grew up in a factory town where automobiles were the trade….

Exiles Guest Blog: Alienation by Richard Godwin
