Gawd willin' and the crik don't rise, Sony Playstation, as part of its sponsorship of the 2007 Manchester International Festival, will be making an animation/cartoon out of my story "A New Face in Hell," to coincide with the launch of Perverted by Language, the anthology based on songs by The Fall. The animation should be widely available on the internet, and a couple of other writers will also be featured (more info on that soon).

Here's more info on the anthology:

Mechanical ducks, shark women that taste of liquorice, perverted sexual shenanigans in cramped office spaces, double-crossing Nazi apologists, bald-headed cultural subversives and celebrity deer-culling - this is just a glimpse into the wonderful and frightening world of Perverted by Language. Twenty-three writers choose a song by The Fall and use it as inspiration for a short story. Kicking off with Niall Griffiths' scalding take on the 1978 single, "Bingo Master's Break-out", the book culminates with Rebbecca Ray's devilishly saucy take on "I Can Hear The Grass Grow". This work is published in association with the inaugural Manchester International Festival (28 June-15 July 2007), the world's first international festival of new work, created by leading artists from across the spectrum of popular culture, innovation and music.

My story revolves around a mechanical duck...

Am I mistaken, or is this mechanical duck the one invented by my fellow citizen (2,5 centuries ago) Jacques de Vaucanson ?

No more squid, then ? ;-)

Quack !

I too was wondering if you were inspired by Vaucanson's mechanical duck which could 'eat' and even 'excrete', although I doubt they ejected anything as gross as a lizard head... Gaby Wood did an interesting book on mechanical 'life' and automata a few years back called Living Doll, which came out around the same time as the related Mechanical Turk book, both fascinating reads (
