The English Soil Society cover

    Tim Nickels' fiction is playful, dangerous, fiercely original and knockout funny. To read him is to know what fiction can and should be about. He is a storyteller of rare ability – wild, unconventional, yet relevant – and there is nothing out there remotely like the tales you'll find in this book. Be grateful for that.
    Conrad Williams, author of Head Injuries

The stories of Tim Nickels defy easy categorisation. They might be folktales from an alternate world, modern-day myths or eccentric fables written by creatures under the earth or from the stars. Yet, despite their elusive, amorphic qualities and dextrous, lullaby prose, they are also rooted with an intensity of emotion that aptly characterises the human condition, expressing both the personal and collective anxieties which affect us all.
