Krent Able and Julian Hanshaw will be with us 7-9pm on Thursday the 13th of September to launch the new SelfMadeHero Sci-fi anthology: I Feel Machine!

Chock full of work from an incredible roster of talent, I Feel Machine includes stories from Shaun Tan, Tillie Walden, Box Brown and Erik Svetoft as well as contributing editors Julian Hanshaw and Krent Able.

"Technology advances at break-neck speed. It transforms the way we communicate and consume, how we work and fall in love and navigate the world.  I Feel Machine explores the strange interplay between humanity and technology. Six visionary short fictions, by turns cautionary and celebratory, offer an electrifying glimpse into our collective future."

 Krent Able's comics first appeared in The Stool Pigeon music magazine in 2009, and were later collected in his Krent Able's Big Book Of Mischief, published by Knockabout in 2012. His work has since appeared in The Guardian, The NME and Vice, and was included in the Comics Unmasked exhibition at The British Library in 2014. In 2016, he co-wrote an award-winning film about his work, Ink, Cocks & Rock 'N' Roll.

Julian Hanshaw won the Observer Comica Short Story Award in 2008. His graphic novels include the Prix Europa-winning The Art Of Pho, as well as Iā€™m Never Coming Back and Cloud Hotel, and he also contributed to Hoax: Psychosis Blues. His graphic novel Tim Ginger was shortlisted for The British Comic Award and the LA Times Book Prize. He has animated on BAFTA-winning shows and his own animation won The Golden Reels in Los Angeles

So dig out your best 21st Century party togs and instruct your handheld computer to remember to join Krent Able and Julian Hanshaw for a celebration of the launch of I Feel Machine: Gosh Comics, Thursday 13th of September, 7-9pm!
