The literature of the fantastic on television

A television production company has just announced that they are about to start filming a series of three programmes for the BBC based of the literature of the fantastic. Their brief is to fire people's interest in how fantasy worlds are created and hope to show how different writers use different techniques to create their own worlds. One of the writers they will be exploring will be Mervyn Peake especially the Gormenghast trilogy.

9th July 1911

The 9th July was Mervyn Peake's birthday; he would have been 96.
