When the dead go unread ... There's gonna be trouble

Editor: James Walker | Art: Paul Fillingham
Assisted by Adrian Reynolds and Wayne Burrows

Dawn of the Unread imagines a scenario whereby dead writers from Nottingham's past are incensed at the closures of libraries and low literacy levels in 21st Century Britain. They are concerned that if their ideas are not preserved and made accessible, then they will cease to exist. Sillitoe, Lawrence, Byron et al would never put up with such an insult and so return from the grave, in a twist on the zombie genre, in search of the one thing that wll ensure their survival: 'boooks'.

Dawn of the Unread features: William Booth, Slavomir Rawicz, Charlie Peace, Gotham Fool, Bryan Clough, Alma Reville, D.H. Lawrence, the 5th Duke of Portland, Bendigo, Ms. Hood, Alan Sillitoe, Mary Howitt, Stanley Middleton, Margaret Cavendish, George Powe and George Africanus. Ray Gosling, Edith Slitwell and Blakey from On the Buses also make guest appearances.
