New Gillion Street

Debut Novel

In politically-neutral Neo-Yuthea, Albert Smith’s orderly life is disrupted when Mr. Zand campaigns for Mayor, leading to uncertain times. Shocking deaths caused by strange forest creatures, enforced arranged marriages, and the impending suppression of Albert’s secret garden meetings bring the community to the brink of chaos. Albert and his neighbours must rally together, resisting the encroaching darkness and fighting for their freedom before their world crumbles.

Praise for New Gillion Street

"Harper’s prose is reminiscent of some of the finest writers this country has produced; he writes with a style classic in nature, and yet post-modern in both form and content. As a writer of primarily the new weird science fiction, Harper has found his home."

Robert Welbourn, author of Belonging and Ideal Angels.


"A witty, thought-provoking satirical fable."

Stu Hennigan, Author of Ghost Signs

“The writing sparkles along with the pace and clarity reaching a conclusion that should satisfy us all.”
