Hollow Shores is the debut collection by Gary Budden, co-director of indie publisher Influx Press. Psychogeography meets punk geography, Hollow Shores blends nature writing, folklore, weird happenings and punk pride in an interlinked set of stories from the emotional geographies of London, Kent, Finland and a place known as the Hollow Shore. Finding horror and ecstasy in the mundane, Hollow Shores follows characters on the cusp of change in broken-down environments and the landscapes of the mind. He will be in conversation with Justin Hopper (The Old Weird Albion), whose work explores the intersection of landscape, memory and myth through non-fiction, poetry, site-specific writing and audio pieces.
Gary Budden's work has appeared in Structo, Elsewhere, Unthology, The Lonely Crowd, Gorse, Galley Beggar Press and many more. He writes about landscape punk at newlexicons.com.
