Three Impostors present: ‘Things Near and Far’ by Arthur Machen

The National Secretary of the IWW, Dave Pike, introduces the fighting union, what it stands for and how it is winning victories for the working class - like higher wages for cleaners, permanency for temps and safety at work for fast food workers.

Three Impostors present: ‘Things Near and Far’ by Arthur Machen
Wednesday October 14th, 7pm
Entry £3, redeemable against any purchase

‘All the wonders lie within a stone’s-throw of King’s Cross Station’.
Arthur Machen, Things Near and Far. The publication of ‘Things Near and Far’ completes Three Impostors edition of Arthur Machen’s autobiographical trilogy. In this book Machen describes his life as a struggling writer in the turbulent literary world of 1890s London, his involvement with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, his years as an actor in the early 20th century, and his explorations on foot of the ‘labyrinthine maze’ of the great city.

The book is a hard back, with dust jacket, limited to 250 numbered copies, with an introduction by Horatio Clare, photographs, endnotes and an index. Join us for the launch on October 14th, when actor, writer and London tour guide Robert Kingham (www.minimumlabyrinth.org) will perform a reading of Machen’s unsettling story ‘N’, set in Stoke Newington, but not necessarily the Stoke Newington you may know…

Complimentary wine and soft drinks available.
