Photocopies of Heaven cover

    A collection of succinctly observed events, characters and phenomena which takes a fresh look at the world and our collisions with it. The style is spare, unexpected and funny, the reader calmly presented with astonishing quirks of fate, the profundity of common physics and disturbing visions of everyday objects possessed by powers unknown.
    Dirk Maggs
    A book of stories and visions filled with masterly touches, light and dark, funny and disturbing, classic and avant-garde. And it even comes with experiments which one could so easily imagine a Vonnegut character urging us to attempt (at one's own risk I must advise!). Bravo!
    Matthew Costello

In Maurice Suckling's debut collection slices of life react and interact against a consumerist background where expectations of what we are and where we should be going are frequently in conflict with reality. Combining traditional storytelling, vignettes, emails, text messages, and a cartoon, Suckling reinvents the short form for a society that has replaced its gods with technology, yet still prefers the permanency of love over a quick cyber fix.
